The police reached the site and searched for animal but could not trace it.

The police suspected a theft.  

According to the daily, Brigadier General Abdullah Khadim Bin Suroor Al-Umar, Director of Bur Dubai Police Station, said a person reported that he found a newborn camel in front of his farmland.

The police reached the site but refused to buy the man’s story that he found the animal, especially since the distance between the farm where the camel was born and his farm was more than 3 kilometres.

The police pointed out that there is a main road that separates the two sites, and it's impossible for a newborn camel to walk that far.
