Camel Smile

Camels are super cute and very fun to ride.  They are great sports!  Just trekking along through the deserts in the crazy heat without any water.  Going down sand dunes on one is a little scary, but they've got it handled.  When you stop in the desert there's nowhere to tie your camel up. 
If you just leave him alone, he won't stick around.  So what do you do?  You have the camel lie down, and you tie one of his feet to the same leg so that the camel can't straighten out that leg and hence can't get up.  It seems a little cruel, but the camel doesn't seem to mind too much, and what other solution is there?
