Update: Camel in Vermont

June 10, 2013


Although we watched on our drive into Burlington on Friday, we did not see this guy again, but last night we ate dinner with several local residents. A simple question, “Hey? Do you know where that camel is south of town?” got both of them going. As much as they knew they did not know that camels can serve as guard companions to the sheep. They figured it was just the owner’s eccentricity….and perhaps it is.

    I’ve heard of someone giving camel rides in the Proctorville area… same farm? I’ve also heard of Alpacas being used as guard companions for sheep, but never camels… isn’t it a bit too humid of a climate for them in this area?

      Beth is visiting Vermont, and this picture was taken there. Llamas, alpacas, and donkeys are often used as guard animal. Camels are new to me too!
