Saudi Arabia Banned Camel Beauty Contest

Saudi Arabia's clerics have just issued a religious ruling or fatwa banning .... camel beauty contests!

The fatwa stated that the contests are prohibited because they include perversion, waste money on futility and ostentation, and are similar to games banned by the Koran.

Camel beauty contests have been held annually at this time for the past decade, and are part of Saudi tribal folklore.
