What happened to Australia’s camel problem?



  1. 0 Votes

    Australia’s camel problem, to clarify, refers to the overpopulation of camels in the outback. Camels were originally imported in the late 19th century to explore the deserts, and now there are over one million feral camels, spilling out of the wildernesses into populated areas. Feral camels have been known to cause damage to farms and ranches and are a particular pest to aboriginal communities. To combat camel overpopulation, the government is considering allowing sharpshooters to hunt camel herds by helicopter. This is similar to Sarah Palin’s proposed solution to wolf problems in Alaska. Many Australian environmental groups, however, consider this suggestion inhumane. To read more about this ongoing debate, see the citation link below.
