“The camel kicked and bit him practically to death, and when he was almost dead, he sat on him,” Tulum Civil Defense official Alberto Canto told the AP. “Between the blows and the weight of the camel on top of him, he was asphyxiated.”
He said it was still unclear why the animal, which was in a kind of enclosure, attacked Mileski, and authorities were sorting through a number of versions, including one that the camel was angry not to get a soft drink.
“One version is that he would always give him a Coca-Cola to drink, and apparently that day he didn’t give him the Coca-Cola,” Canto said. But, he added, “there are a lot of versions.”Rescuers used a rope tied to a pickup truck to pull the angry dromedary off of Mileski’s body.
