From The Guardian:
Twelve camels have been disqualified from Saudi Arabia’s annual camel beauty contest after receiving botulinum toxin injections to make their pouts look more alluring.
Saudi authorities have raised the profile of the King Abdulaziz camel festival by relocating it from the desert to the outskirts of the capital, Riyadh.
This year’s event has been been mired in scandal after the lure of $31.8m (£22.6m) in prize money tempted some owners to cheat.
Honest question: Does Botox really make a camel more attractive?
You wouldn’t think Botox would make that much of a difference on camels. https://t.co/R9r07RD0BQ
