Man's Head Reportedly Severed by His Camel So reports the 'Times of India' By Kate Seamons, Newser Staff Posted May 23, 2016 4:25 PM CDT 49 comments Comments File photo. (Shutterstock) (Newser) – A killer walrus, a savage beaver attack, and now death by camel? If a report in the Times of India is to be believed, yes. On Thursday, India's Rajasthan state dealt with record heat—hitting a high of 123.8 degrees Fahrenheit—and all day on Saturday, a Jaisalmer resident identified only as Urjaram reportedly left his camel in the heat with tied legs. When he went to untie the animal, "The animal lifted him by the neck and threw him on to the ground, chewed the body, and severed the head," says a witness. The report claims it took two dozen residents six hours to subdue the animal.
