Baby Camel Burgers?

I definitely need to classify this as "very uncool." A fast food restaurant in Saudi Arabia is now selling "Hashi" burgers:

The camel is celebrated as a symbol of the country’s nomadic tradition. And because “it doesn’t have much fat, it’s light and has a delicate taste,” said one patron of Local Hashi Meals—“Hashi” being the Saudi word for “baby camel,” as he happily scarfed down his burger.

Granted, there is a chance that using camels... gulp... is local and sustainable... gulp... but come on... baby ones?!
