Ever since Amber Thesing of Randall visited “Safari North Wildlife Park” in Brainerd, she fell in love with camels.
“They had a weanling and it was nursing on my ear lobe and jacket lapel. It was bellering for its mom and was in a fence that was maybe three feet high and easily could have gone over it, but chose not to. I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, I need one if they are this docile,’” she said.
That was the beginning of Thesing’s quest to find a camel and to learn as much as she possibly could about them. She also wanted to make sure that she had a veterinarian and a trainer lined up before she even purchased a camel.
"I crossed my ‘T’s and dotted my ‘I’s before I started looking seriously for a camel,” she said.
