Camels Rescued From Indian Circus Named After The Bachelor Host and His New Wife

Sydney – Freshly home from their honeymoon in Japan, Osher Günsberg and his bride, Audrey Griffen, have received a unique wedding gift from PETA: the animal rights group has named two rescued camels in India after the loved-up couple.

TV, radio, and podcast host Günsberg, who eats a plant-based diet, married make-up artist Griffen after the pair met behind the scenes while filming The Bachelor.

Camels Osher and Audrey, previously known as Sameer and Simran, were both rescued from a circus by PETA-supported charity Animal Rahat, which offers relief to working animals in India. They will now spend the rest of their days together, relaxing in peace at the organisation’s sanctuary in Maharashtra.

“We hope Osher Günsberg and Audrey Griffen’s future together will be as joyous as that of their camel namesakes, who will never again be forced to perform confusing tricks or endure neglect and mistreatment”, says Ashley Fruno, PETA Australia’s associate director of campaigns.

Animal Rahat offers services in three districts in Maharashtra, one of the largest states in India. The organisation is run by dedicated staff members – including a community educator, animal caretakers, and veterinarians – who are on call for emergencies and advice around the clock, every day of the year.
