A camel in Australia – not one of those that was rescued

A man, a dog and five camels have been rescued by police after they fell down a steep slope during a walk in the Australian bush.

The 38-year-old man and his party were on a track near the town of Jamieson in Victoria when one of the camels lost its footing.

Because they were tied together, the whole pack and the man were pulled down, authorities told the BBC.

No one was seriously injured but the rescue spanned nearly four hours.

“Basically – chap was out with his camels. One fell, dragged some others, and that’s led to the whole ship going down,” said Country Fire Authority district commander Paul Horton.

He said police were notified around 15:00 on
