Twelve camels are disqualified from Saudi Arabian beauty contest for using Botox

Twelve camels have been disqualified from an annual Saudi beauty contest after their owners were found to have used Botox.

The animals were ejected from the King Abdulaziz Camel Festival, taking place near Riyadh, for violating strict beauty contest rules.

Cash prizes for camel competitions at the 28-day festival total $57 million, so pressure to cheat can be intense.
