Don’t Tase Me, Dro!

Donna Berdine keeps several animals fenced in the back of her Kiln, Miss., home. The dromedary camel, however, doesn’t take well to being fenced in. It escaped from the back yard and attacked Nedra Lewis’s red Nissan. Lewis called 911. “I tried to chase the animal away so the female could get her car to safety outside the gate,” reported Deputy Ed Merwin. “The animal was not complying with my commands. At this time, the animal was tased once. It fled to the other side of the property.” (MS/Sea Coast Echo) ...Silly cop: I’ll bet he issued his “commands” in English.
