Australia Plans to Kill Thirsty Camels – CBS News
Australian authorities plan to corral about 6,000 wild camels with helicopters and gun them down after they overran a small Outback town in search of water, trampling fences, smashing tanks and contaminating supplies.
In August, the federal government set aside 19 million Australian dollars for a program to slash the wild camel population, including a possible mass slaughter. (via Australia Plans to Kill Thirsty Camels – CBS News).
Their justification – camels “are not native to Australia but were introduced in the 1840s, have smashed water tanks, approached houses to try to take water from air conditioning units, and knocked down fencing at the small airport runway …”.
The last time I heard, the current human population of Australia was also not native to Australia – and the the native population of Australia has itself been annihilated. The obvious Desert Bloc answer to any problem is genocide, slaughter and killing.
And after that is an apology.
