Doug Baum, better known as the Camel man, and his son, Pecos, attended the Rotary Club meeting in Clifton to offer a program on the history of camels in Texas, and interesting facts about raising camels in Texas today. Baum said he first became interested in camels working as a Zoo keeper in Tennessee in the 1990’s. He decided to come back to Texas and after hearing the history of camels in Texas, he decided to raise a few. He started off with two, and since then he has anywhere from two to 12 on his ranch outside Cayote community.
