Age: 10-11 years
Rescued: December 2015
Rustam is the name of a male camel around 10-11 years. He was rescued from a place called Shahjahanpur, by the organisation PFA in December 2015. He was going to be slaughtered with many other camels. When he was rescued he was unable to stand and had multiple wounds all over his body. We were not sure about his recovery. After 10 days of continuous treatment, making him stand with the help of a pulley, a nutritious diet and massage he came out as a winner. He started standing again. We named him Rustam which means ‘A brave fighter’.
Now most of the time he is a calm well-natured camel. Sometimes he shows some aggressiveness. He dislikes to be commanded. When we pull him forwards he always goes back. He likes to eat ground nut straw and gram straw.
