Mexico: U.S. Expat kicked and bitten to death by camel at wildlife park

Posted on October 15, 2014 • Filed under: Expatriate attacked, Expatriate Killed, Mexico

theguardian.com reported an American owner of a wildlife park in the Mexican resort of Tulum has died after being kicked, bitten and sat on by a camel, and authorities have seized the private facility’s animals pending an investigation. Rescuers had to use a rope tied to a pickup truck to pull the enraged camel off the body of Richard Mileski of Chicago, Illinois, according to a Tulum civil defence official, Alberto Canto. He said Mileski was 70 years old and the attack took place on Monday. “The camel kicked and bit him practically to death, and when he was almost dead, he sat on him,” said Canto. “Between the blows and the weight of the camel on top of him, he was asphyxiated.” Read Article
