Raika men herd their camels into the Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary to graze. The Raika are an ancestral caste of camel breeders in Rajasthan. Due to the increased cost of feeding and shelter, more and more Raika are being forced to sell off their camels, often for camel meat, which was once considered taboo.
