Israel - A one-year-old baby suffered moderate injuries when he was bitten by a camel while visiting a southern Israeli zoo with his family Friday.

The infant was rushed for emergency surgery at Beersheba’s Soroka Medical Center; his condition was later said to be stable.

The family was touring the Chai Negev Ecological Village in Kibbuz Revivim when the camel grabbed the infant by the head.

A spokesperson for Soroka Medical Center said that the baby suffered severe injuries to his face and salivary glands. He added that the surgery was completed without complications, and that the child is now in recovery.

Never let children get too close to the animals even if they are in a cage. Every now and then you hear a story and its really dangerous.

unfortunately it is not that obvious there are many foolish people, sometimes even aggravating lions or tigers and sometimes they pay the ultimate price.

However this case it a little different since camels are pretty docile and I do not think meat is on their menu

It may be obvious but if you'd have heeded your own advice you'd still be a happy pike splashing around in some lake rather sliced cold on a plate covered in chrein.
