Beijing: A Chinese man died after his camel turned on him and bit him on his head in a northeast China city.
The man surnamed Sun was rushed to a hospital by his co-workers but died despite emergency treatment for three hours.
The man raised three camels for his owner in Dalian of China's Liaoning Province, Shanghai Daily reported on Tuesday.
People who know the man said in online microblogs that his camels were usually tame but would become irritable when they enter the mating season.
When they become angry, they are dangerous as they would spit, bite or kick at people.
It is not known how Sun's camel got angry and attacked him, the report said.
