Up to 10,000 camels will be shot and killed during major Australian drought

Up to 10,000 camels will be shot and killed following complaints that they are drinking too much water, as the wildfires spread across Australia. Aboriginal offcials in the South Australia province said the wild animals are endangering locals who are struggling to get enough water during a massive drought. Offcials plan to kill the camels in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands.

Camels were brought here to aid expiditions for early settlers in the trying Australian conditions. When the camels use was no longer required they just released them. Now we have too many. They are not native, it's our mess to clean up.
