More than 10,000 Australian camels to Die Because They Drink Water

Australia is engulfed in bushfires and it is running out of water to be able to control it. The solution the authorities there have come up with? To kill thousands of feral camels in South Australia, to stop the animals drinking water in the drought-ravaged region. 

According to The Australian, 10,000 camels will be culled by professional shooters in helicopters from Wednesday after an order from Aboriginal leaders in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara lands (AYP). 

Apparently the local communities have been complaining about the feral creatures invading properties in search of water. There also seems to be a concern that these animals are contributing to global warming as they emit methane equal to one tonne of carbon ­dioxide a year.

“We have been stuck in stinking hot and uncomfortable conditions, feeling unwell, because the camels are coming in and knocking down fences, getting in around the houses and trying to get to water through air conditioners,” The Australian quoted APY executive board member, Marita Baker, as saying.
