Camel Racing Robots Use Stun Guns To Make Steeds Go Faster
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…
