Australian Government Kills 10,000 Camels

Plans to kill more than 10,000 camels have been approved by the Australian authorities in a bid to save the country’s citizens from harsh competition for water and food with the animals.

Australia serves as a habitat to more than 10 million camels, which has been hard for them to be managed and satisfied as would be required. The shooting has been going on since 2012, with an average of 75,000 camels being shot yearly. The act has been receiving condemnation the world over, the animals’ enthusiasts terming it as inhumanity by the Australian authorities.

Australia has been straining to substantially avail water and vegetation for both humans and the humped creatures thanks to the dry condition the country has been facing.

“We have been stuck in stinking hot and uncomfortable conditions, feeling unwell, because the camels are coming in and knocking down fences, getting in around the houses and trying to get to water through air conditioners.” A local spoke to The Australian, the country’s major news outlet.

Camels according to study consume up to 200 litres of water in less than 10 minutes, posing a great competition for the same with humans. The water supply in Australia has continuously been vulnerable to droughts, always being the need to conserve whatever little that is found in the catchment areas.
