The camel lay dead at the side of the road with visible injuries to its body. The strange discovery was made at 3.30 on Monday morning.
“We think it was being transported in a trailer and fell out in such a way that it was dragged along the road behind the vehicle. The body was probably just dumped when the accident was discovered,” said police spokesman Lars Lindwall.
Police have reported the incident as a case of cruelty to animals are are currently seeking the camel’s owner.
