Daily Show's Camel Stunt Gone Wrong!

| Filed under: TV NewsDanger!Camel

Camels and comedy didn’t mix for The Daily Show this week!

A gag that was to be shot with a camel in Wisconsin was scrapped after the animal’s leg became entangled in a metal barricade, causing the animal to fall down.

The Daily Show issued a statement about the matter today:

Earlier this week, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart was in Madison, WI shooting a segment about the Wisconsin labor protests. For an element of the piece, we made arrangements through a local animal wrangler to film a camel. Prior to any filming, the camel, while in the care of its handlers, got its leg caught in a barricade and fell. The camel was not injured, but after the incident, The Daily Show immediately decided not to pursue the idea any further and did not film any material with the camel. The camel remains in good health but is declining media requests at this time.

Video captured some of the unfortunate incident, which includes Daily Show correspondent John Oliver asking the person filming the action, to turn off the camera.
