I read the story at another source and it said they plan to use the dead camels for ‘human and pet consumption”, so I suppose they will not waste these animals for nothing. It seems to me that they could capture them and export them to places like the middle east that can use them..........................
“Cash for humpers.”
It’s kosher and halal, so mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!............
More like a cross between Whooping Crane and California Condor.
And both of those are invader species, which have become pests over the years. Good solution to a problem...
No problem, FRiend.
Yes. Contrary to popular belief in the US, law abiding Australians can legally own a wide variety of firearms. A lot of nonsense was published in the US in the late 1990s about supposed 'gun bans' and 'confiscations' in Australia. Gun laws were 'reformed' at that time, and more restrictions were introduced than had existed before, but provided you don't have a criminal record, it's easy to get a licence for basic firearms, and quite possible to obtain licences for more powerful firearms if you are willing to navigate the red tape. One of the easiest ways to do this is to 'show a reason' for owning such a weapon - such as pig shooting or camel culling.
Understand these camels are in very isolated areas. Quite literally, you could be nearly a thousand miles from any town with more than a thousand people in the middle of a dry, hot desert.
Unless you can shoot the camel, and get it into refrigerated storage within a short period of time, you’re not going to get a carcass that is much use for food purposes. And even if you do manage that, the transport costs involved in getting it to a place where it can be processed, and then the further transport costs, in getting it to the places where there are people to eat it. . . basically a large scale camel meat industry in Australia simply doesn’t make economic sense.
Those camels that are in more accessible areas are used commercially - but huge numbers - at least a million - are simply too far away to make that practical.
tell me there is really ....not people that are that Stupid in this world. Please?
