Six children and one adult were taken to a local hospital and treated for injuries, the most serious of which was a fractured arm. And, thankfully, no animals were hurt in the incident.
But many find the moment, caught on camera by an onlooker in the stands, quite disturbing.
"This troubling video shows a frightened camel panicking and running amok with a terrified rider falling from the camel's back," Debbie Leahy, captive wildlife protection manager at the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), told The Dodo. "Other animals are visibly startled by the camel's behavior, including the ponies."
