UAE: An Encounter with a Camel

If you tell anyone you live in the Arabian Gulf, two things come to their mind – oil and camels. Noora Nasrallah, who tweets as PurpleNano, describes her encounter with a camel in the UAE a series of tweets today.

In her first tweet, she says:

Haha we're all stopped on Emirates road toward #RAK by cops cuz there's a camel walking on the side of the road :D

The follow up tweet brings more news on the distraught and probably lost camel:

Poor camel!! He's running along the road looking scared :S

And finally the police save the day and rescue the camel:

Haha camel was successfully moved to the other side of the road. Bravo cops!

On Tweetpic, PurpleNano posts the following picture:

Police rescue camel

A happy ending for one camel, I suppose.
