No disrespect to any members who might be affiliated with PETA (o.k. maybe a little disrespect intended), but I pity the camel that refuses to let me off it's back and heaven forbid it try to bite me. You would be able to attribute one camel casualty to me. I am sure this would land me in trouble with the local authorities but no four-legged varmint is going to hold me captive.
