Vasiliy Sukhotaev, about camel breeding

Change log


Terbish, Baasanjav 


Vasiliy says the following: Many children today have never even seen a camel because almost no one keeps them anymore. In the past we had many camels that pulled carts and were used as a means of transportation. People also used camel hair. (Repetition) Once I saw two male camels fight with each other. In was in spring, and the camels got locked into each other. There were many men around, but noone dared to approach the beasts. One camel broke the jaw of the other. Since it would not have survived and died of hunger anyway, the injured camel was slaughtered for meat.
