--I distinctly recall an article in one of the gun magazines a few years ago suggesting hunting trips to Australia for the purpose of shooting feral camels-
-IIRC, they were completely unprotected.
There were outfitters prepared to guide the hunt, etc.,--they are a big, tough animal, requiring at least a .30-'06 class rifle with an elk-type bullet for successful shooting---

(--don't believe anything the media or government says about firearms or explosives--)
like 99.9% of horses...all dromedary camels are feral domesticated animals....I do not know if there are any truly wild camels left either dromedary or bactrian.
I would use a 30-06 with at least an 180 grain bullet...
though for short range a 45-70 with 405 or 500 grain bullets would work quite nicely....
