Dead Camel Found Next to Road

What is a dead camel doing on the side of a highway in Sweden?

That’s what police are trying to find out after the unusual discovery earlier this week. The police thought it was a joke when they received reports that the carcass of a camel was spotted next to the E22 highway near Karlskrona, in southeastern Sweden.

But upon arriving on the scene they saw the reports were completely true. Judging by its injuries, the authorities believe the camel was being transported on a trailer, but somehow fell off and was dragged behind the vehicle.

According to a police spokesperson the body was then probably just dumped. The police were treating the incident as a case of animal abuse and are searching for the camel’s owner.
