    In wild encounter, woman bites testicles of Tiger Truck Stop camel to escape, officials say

    A bizarre encounter unfolded at the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete last week when a Florida truck driver and her husband crawled into a camel's enclosure at the truck stop, and the camel sat on the woman, who bit the camel's testicles to escape.

    According to the Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office, the woman's husband threw doggy treats under Caspar the camel's fence, which is about 6 feet high.

    The Sheriff's Office said surveillance video showed the couple's dog crawled into the pen to retrieve the treats and began interacting with the camel. The woman crawled in to recover her pet and her husband followed behind.

    The camel sat on the woman and she bit the animal, a male dromedary, to get it off of her, the Sheriff's Office said.

    She said, ‘I bit his balls to get him off of me, ” Iberville Parish Deputy Louis Hamilton Jr. said.

    If it says "Parish Sheriff's Office", it's going to be Louisiana, which is divided into 64 parishes, while other US states are divided into counties, or in the case of Alaska, into boroughs.

    The Americans say "Only in America" with a sense of pride. I think we say it differently...

    We could always turn to this fun German man for a more dispassionate analysis, which is all the more pertinent to this particular story by dint of his username

    Yup, just outside Baton Rouge according to Google.

    So when may we expect the viral YouTube video of them trying to put the sticking plaster on the camel?
