Unusual : a camel escapes and ends up … in a hospital !

The staff of the Oussim hospital, near Giza, in the North of Egypt, received a visit from a very unusual patient: a camel!

No, this rather agitated and disoriented camel is not in the waiting room of the Oussim hospital, near Giza in Egypt, for a consultation. He has in fact escaped the surveillance of a local resident who was leading him… to the slaughterhouse.

Unwanted visitor

As you can see on the video, the nursing staff, very surprised by this unusual patient, did their best to push the camelid to leave the premises, but you don’t just get rid of a 500 kilogram animal…

After all these adventures, we wish the animal to have been able to find freedom again!
