Sultan has finally made his way to RESQ Pune… He has multiple wounds and a very bad posture from being overworked in Ahmednagar (he was made to pull large carriages there). He was abandoned and we were alerted about him by PFA Delhi (who is handling the matter with owner) but when we saw his pictures, we just knew that we had to go get him out of there. We took 4+ hours by truck to bring him into Pune last night… He’s a lovely camel, has a good temperament but we’re still getting to know all his moods, his likes and dislikes. We are using some positive reinforcement (treats like greens and carrots!) to get him to listen to us and cooperate for his wound dressings and treatment. We’ve removed the sharp objects camel owners pierce the camel noses with to get control over them, however, we have left a string there just until we are fully able to manage him on command. He’s a smelly fellow and is going to need a medicated bath very soon too – imagine the amount of shampoo and helping hands we’re going to need to bathe this 10 ft tall furry camel! Sultan's wounds, skin and bones need some serious care after years and years of being used as a beast of burden and entertainment. He’s a 600kg camel and we’re going to need all the help we can get.
