Aboriginal officials in Australia have approved the killing of up to 10,000 camels as a region battling scorching heat and a long drought deals with animals searching for water. 

Officials in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in northwest South Australia agreed to the “aerial cull” after listening to requests for help from residents who said they saw “extremely large groups of camels and other feral animals in and around communities” in the region.

In a statement on Facebook, local government official said camels and other feral – which essentially means wild, undomesticated animals – are searching for water. But camels are the “primary” targets of the cull. Government leaders held a board meeting on Dec. 11 to discuss the animals, and the cull was approved for Wednesday. It will last five days. 

“With the current ongoing dry conditions (and) the large camel congregations threatening the APY communities and infrastructure, immediate camel control is needed,” the government body said on Facebook. (usatoday)

    This is real cruelty. In this modern world I am sure they can easily provide water for these innocent animals than killing them. Nature provide water for all and is it fair only humans to consume and kill the animals.

    What a strange country; first it was the rabbits then the dingo and now camels; when will it be the Asian's turn to be culled?

    Hon. Scot Morrison, Mr. Prime Minister, Please do not let this happen, it's a curse to entire Australia. Moreover, Australia is a country that respect the right for animals to live freely.

    I thought of all animals camels are the ones that require the least amount of water. So called developed countries....

    Its Australia's internal matter. Its there right to kill. No Sri Lankan's have right to comment on that. If brave people here, we should wipe out all baboons from Diyawanna.

    well in fairness, if one camel is killed two humans should be also killed since, we consume more water in comparative - not to mention wasting

    Introduced animals that went feral invade the fragile environment that the indigenous animals lived for and have become unique . the cats Culling the numbers would make space for the native animals and for the livestock industry ..Seems cruel but with the drought and changing weather patterns threat to all.

    The comments here are very silly. A direct result of wasting time listening to some Ranja's audio clips than educating themselves about the introduced species of Australia
