Australia: More than 10,000 Camels to Be Shot because They Drink Too Much Water

In the News

More than 10,000 camels will be shot by professional shooters in helicopters to prevent them from drinking too much water in drought-afflicted South Australia.

Is this right?

Do the drought conditions allow man to kill 10,000 animals?

Could camels become endangered because of this?

I doubt they'd be allowed to do it if the camels would become endangered. That doesn't make it right though.

It does beg the question though about why we give preferential treatment to endangered animals when we are prepared to disregard others to the point of slaughtering 10,000 of them just because it suits us (us being - humans) which could lead to them becoming endangered. 🐞

I think they can eat the camel meat...

It is difficult there, because the fire created a new weather system...can not even imagine what is going on there...

This disgusted me when you posted it last night and I still feel the same today. The poor things are trying desperately to survive in the horrendous conditions out there, which were started by humans, what gives anyone the right to take their lives? Yes I feel for the humans too but they have the option to evacuate which many are refusing to do, the camels have had their habitat destroyed and have now encroached on human territory because of it. Every day I despair of the human race and what we are doing to our planet and beautiful creatures. It is homosapiens that need to be on the endangered list more than any animal

Plenty of people they could put down in Australia first before animals just searching for water

Thor totally agree especially the idiot that started the fire back in September and the morons that have started other fires since to either try and play heroes or just because they could

tumblespots couldn't agree more, if there is a God and he/she created mankind, they need to throw the blueprint away as there is some seriously messed up people out there that shouldn't have passed the quality checks

I don't agree with this, its already wiped billions of animals out, I don't think this helps the problem.
