A camel has reportedly killed its owner after being left in high temperatures with its legs tied up all day.

The incident in the Indian state of Rajasthan happened on Saturday during a record-breaking heatwave that saw temperatures reaching 43 degrees Celsius.

According to the Times of India, a man named only as Ujaram was entertaining guests at his house during the evening when he remembered he’d left his camel with its legs tied.

Upon trying to untie the animal, the camel attacked him, throwing him to the ground.

Over 25 villagers reportedly struggled with the camel for six hours.

The report quotes villager Thakara Ram, who said: “The animal lifted him by the neck and threw him on to the ground, chewed the body and severed the head.”

Temperatures in parts of Rajasthan rose above 51 degrees Celsius over the weekend.
