Virginia local TV reporter Tara Morgan was trying to record a report about animal abuse when the camel started chomping on her tresses.
The NBC12 anchor was filming the story in Richmond, when she was interrupted by the hungry camel.
As she started the report the camel appeared to be intrigued by her locks as it leaned down towards her head.
Then the animal suddenly took a clump of her hair in its mouth and tried to rip it from her head.
The camera man had to stop filming and go to the reporter’s aid to free her hair from the camel’s mouth.
TV station said neither Miss Morgan or the camel were injured.
