Twelve Camels Are Disqualified From Saudi Arabian Beauty Contest For Using Botox

(Daily Mail)  -  Twelve camels have been disqualified from an annual Saudi beauty contest after their owners were found to have used Botox.

The animals were ejected from the King Abdulaziz Camel Festival, taking place near Riyadh, for violating strict beauty contest rules. 

Cash prizes for camel competitions at the 28-day festival total $57million, so pressure to cheat can be intense.

A new handbook was issued to beauty contest entrants last year, Newshub reports.

'Camels that are found with drugs in the lips, shaved, dyed in any parts of the body, or with changes from natural form are not allowed,' the handbook says.

Aside from the beauty contest there are awards for camel racing, obedience training, camel hair art and the best photographs of camels.

'We used to preserve it out of necessity, now we preserve it as a pastime.'

weird kind of news
so why they got beauty camel contests ?
they in the gulf usually have those high priced betting camel races , that got the world awe about the "use" of small kids from pakisthan or india and so , as jockeys taking then from the families for a few dolars ... a way that is dump for use of jockey robots
they are more economic , don`t got world attention on human rights ( they are trying that also for building those high rise buildings and stadiums by hiring aliens from vulcan )
