And yet, a UK music festival called Todd in the Hole plans to have a camel racing event on 21st and 22nd July. Not only is this cruel to these naturally calm and quiet-natured animals, it’s potentially hazardous to bystanders. The camels could easily get spooked by loud or unexpected noises, and behave erratically.
Care2 member Samantha has had lots of success with her petitions to cancel other animal races: eight sheep races and a pig race have already been stopped thanks to her Care2 campaigns. Now she’s standing up for camels.
