Hungry camel hurts two women after the animals probably have removed "Do Not Feed" sign by themselves

As the police reported, a 38-year-old and her 65-year-old mother wanted to feed the camels of a circus stranded in the Austrian town Ried (Innkreis). They each had a sack of carrots with them. One of the camels in the enclosure grabbed the vegetables greedily and knocked its mother over. Then it grabbed the carrots a second time and caught the woman lying on the ground by her forearm.

The 65-year-old had to be admitted to the hospital in Ried after the accident. According to the circus staff there was a sign saying that feeding the animals was forbidden. But before the incident, the sign was obviously torn down by an unknown person or by the camels themselves, according to the police report.
