Qatar: Camel wins beauty contest after undergoing X-Rays

A camel who had to undergo X-rays to prove it had not been given cosmetic surgery amid a Botox scandal has been crowned the most beautiful camel in Qatar.

Mangiah Ghufran was declared the winner of the £202,500 (one million riyals) top cash prize at the first Qatar Camel Festival in the city of Al-Shahaniya on Tuesday.

Few owners used cosmetic procedures to dupe the judges, who hand out prizes based on the shape of the camels’ heads, necks, humps, dress and postures. Not only is the treatment unfair on other breeders, but it risks leaving the camels with horrific injuries.
