Dead camel found on the side of a highway in Sweden

What is a dead camel doing on the side of a highway in Sweden? That's what police are trying to find out after the unusual discovery.

Police thought it was a joke when they received reports early Monday that the carcass of a camel was spotted next to the E22 highway near Karlskrona, in southeastern Sweden.

"But when the patrol got there it turned out be completely true," police spokesman Lars Lindwall told news agency TT.

Judging by its injuries, police believe the camel was being transported on a trailer, but somehow fell off and was dragged behind the vehicle.

"When that was discovered they probably just dumped the body," Lindwall said.

Police were treating the incident as a case of animal abuse and were searching for the camel's owner, TT reported.
