Another version of the camel is they get you on one for a photo, and then the camel won't let you off until you pay the ransom. It will keep trying to bite you if you attempt to dismount.

This is not much different than the jerk with the pony on St. Thomas, up in the hills by the overlook of the town. People would get on the pony and then had to pay a price to get off.
