Camel Sits On Woman At Truck Stop Who Bites Its Testicles To Escape

This Florida woman takes sitting down for a bite to a whole new bizarre level

A Florida woman is probably wishing she had put her dog on a leash after she followed it into an animal enclosure and got sat on by a camel named Caspar.

How did she manage to get this 600-pound — they can weigh upwards of 1,100 pounds, so it could’ve been much worse — beast off of her?

She bit him — right on his testicles.

“I bit his balls to get him off of me, I bit his testicles to get him off of me,” Gloria Lancaster, 68, told the police.

That’s right, she had whatever the camel equivalent to Rocky Mountain oysters is, straight from the source.

Lancaster ended up under the wrong end of the camel after she and her husband made a stop at Tiger Truck Stop.

The truck stop is located in Grosse Tete, Louisiana, which is about 16 miles from Baton Rouge. It’s known for being a truck stop petting zoo — seriously.

Caspar the friendly camel

They let their deaf dog out when they arrived so it could go to the bathroom and stretch its legs.

It wasn’t long after the dog had been out that they realized it had gotten into Caspar’s enclosure.

Police later found out the couple aggravated Caspar by throwing treats inside his cage, prompting the dog to go in.

Deputy Louis Hamilton Jr. cited the responsible party with a leash law violation. Lancaster was also charged with criminal trespassing.

“The camel has never been aggressive, the camel has never gotten out, never caused any issues,” Deputy Hamilton said. “In fact, the husband and wife stated before that we’ve been here before and we’ve never had any problems.”

Caspar has been a resident of the truckstop since last summer.

Tiger Truck Stop was originally home to a tiger named Tony the Tiger (cereal not included) which the stop was originally named after. Unfortunately, Tony was put down before bringing Caspar in, who has been carrying the petting zoo torch ever since.
