    A Wichita County woman known for raising camels was killed Saturday, along with a male companion.

    The Wichita County Sheriff’s Office reports Peggye McNair, 72, and Mark Mere, 53, were found lying in a fenced area in the 4200 block of FM 367.

    A release from the Sheriff’s Office said both people had suffered trauma and were dead when deputies arrived.

    “A large aggressive camel was in the area as well and it took deputies several minutes to move it to another location. It appears that both victims were trampled by the camel,” the release said.

    The bodies have been sent to Tarrant County for autopsy.........

    Fortunately for the public at large, I read in another story the the camel was euthanized. Apparently the camel was in rut and when they get horny, they get very aggressive.

    I'm trying to imagine how it could kill people. I suppose it could run faster than a human but it doesn't have arms.

    That's pretty traditional in western belts. You see a lot of people here wearing them with suits to add western flair. I even have one, although I'm also old :sad:

    Yeah, I think it's still the Western look, too... Those belts were well-made. Brighton? i think was the most popular....
