This incident isn't surprising given that some animals, like camels, are easily startled. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to those hurt in the Syria Shriners Circus today at PPG Paints Arena".

Rachel Mathews, PETA Foundation Deputy Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement, said in a separate statement that, "This risky incident is exactly what Pittsburgh's ban on using weapons to threaten wild and exotic animals should be preventing. PETA is calling on the Syria Shriners to let this be the straw that ends the camel acts and urging the public never to buy a ticket to any circus that uses animals".
