LETTERS: Stop Smoking Camels
From ANIMAL PEOPLE, September 2001:
We are British veterinarians, volunteering for Help in
Suffering in Jaipur, India. We are trying to set up a mobile camel
clinic. Our goals are to place reflectors on camel carts to reduce
night road accidents; worm the camels; give treatment and advice to
camel owners concerning saddlery; and to discourage the traditional
use of burning as a “cure” for various ailments.
A pilot effort has been very successful, attending to more
than 700 camels, and was well received by the camel owners–but we
need funding to continue. We have prepared a detailed proposal and a
detailed budget which we would be happy to send to interested people
