At her funeral Wednesday, Noel Weaver said that he did not blame the camel, which his wife had raised from birth, The Sydney Daily Telegraph reported.

"She loved animals, rearing everything from goats, kangaroos, emus, rabbits and the camel," Weaver said.

Police Sgt. Greg Mitchell said that the camel may not have been responsible, that Mrs. Weaver may have been killed by a heart attack. He said investigators were still waiting for an autopsy report.

Mrs. Weaver grew up on her parents’ farm in Victoria. She and her husband managed Loch Lomond, their property near Mitchell, for decades.
