Two men were killed by a rampaging camel that escaped from a petting zoo in Tennessee, according to local officials.

Bobby Matheny, 42, and Tommy Gunn, 67, both from The Volunteer State, died after they were cornered and attacked by the frenzied camel Thursday in Obion, roughly 100 miles northeast of Memphis.

The humped beast was killed by responding law enforcement officers.

================================================
Down south. Love their editor's wording.
 
A camel expert told the outlet that when fully grown, the animals “have enough strength to crush arms and legs along with your neck while kicking forward and backwards.”

“Most animals can only kick backwards. Camels will do a combination of all those things while kneeling forward to crush you,” the expert said.

Good Lord, what a horrible way to die.
 
Sad story.

Wonder what made the thing so crazy?
Ya know I just recently saw a photo of some folks standing around some camels in the Mid East somewhere and I had the thought "Man, those camels look like they could be pretty dangerous if they wanted to, they must be pretty docile by nature".

Must have been something wrong with it? Maybe abused or something? Sick? Just pissed off at being in Tennessee? I dunno.

bad way to go. RIP fellas.
