Camel Racing Robots Use Stun Guns To Make Steeds Go Faster

by | 21st, January 2011

NEWS is that camel racing “has been thrown into disrepute”. So writes Richard Spencer from Dubai.

Did it ever have repute? Was camel racing ever a reputable sport? It’s not exactly darts, is it?

News is that the camels are bring whipped with electric stun-guns to make them run faster.

And then the story just gets better:

These were then being fitted inside the robot jockeys, which cost between £130-£200, that in recent years have largely replaced child jockeys…

The local police chief adds:

It is inhumane to use such machines in camel races.

Especially inhuman robot jockey monkeys…
