Abbott’s attorney, Charles M. Thomas of New Orleans, said Abbott visited Beauvoir with her husband. They were strolling to the cemetery behind the Davis home when Sir Camelot appeared.
“June was basically just walking across the grounds and this camel charged at her, stampeded her, and ended up biting her,” Thomas said.
As a result of the attack, he said, Abbott suffered a fractured wrist and vertebrae.
...By December 2015, the Beauvoir board had decided the camel and other animals needed to go. A motion the board passed 6-2 cited waste issues and aggressive behavior from the camel, plus goats that were butting car doors. After visitor numbers dropped, Sir Camelot and other animals returned to Beauvoir in June 2016.
