Animal-related injuries can range from insignificant to life threatening, and can involve domestic or wild animals. In the United States, the largest represented animal-related injury is dog bites. The CDC reports 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year and 1 in 5 injuries require medical attention. In comparison, in developing countries injuries from other species including cows, horses, pigs, donkeys, tigers, monkeys, and camels are more frequently reported. Animal-related injuries vary by region and the animal’s behavior and relationship with humans. Camel bites/attacks are rare outside the Middle East, Africa, and India. To our knowledge, there has been only one report of a camel attack in the United States. This report presents the unusual case of a camel attack on a farm in rural Tennessee.
