As a result of Australia literally being on fire, difficult decisions are being made to conserve precious resources. One of those tough choices is to shoot over 10,000 camels because they drink too much water.

The camels will be shot by professional firearms experts from helicopters; the move aims to prevent the camels from drinking too much water in drought-afflicted South Australia. According to The Australian, the shooting will begin Wednesday, following an order from Aboriginal leaders in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) lands.

Locals have been complaining that the animals have been entering communities and “wreaking havoc” as they search for available water, including taps and tanks.

“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,’’ said Marita Baker, a board member of the APY executive.

By culling the camel population, APY Lands manager Richard King explained that a buffer zone will be created to better protect communities and children. “Even the moisture that your air conditioner generates will attract them, and when you’ve got four or five animals really wanting water — they’re quite capable of breaking air conditioners,” said King.

To remove the camels, he added, it would take three years. “And in that time we’ve got to feed them … the reality is, we just can’t do that,” he said.

Another factor contributing to the animals’ demise is the fact that they emit methane equivalent to one ton of carbon dioxide per year. According to a spokesperson for the South Australia Department of Environment and Water, the increasing number of animals is causing several problems in the region.

All in all, the operation to curb the camel population will cost $1.2 million and take five days. The carcasses will be left to dry off before they are burned or buried, reports ABC News.

Camels were first introduced to Australia from India and Afghanistan during the 19th century. They were primarily used for transport and construction. Traditional owners in the west of the APY lands mustered feral camels for sale, according to the DEW spokesperson. However, due to the droughts, the owners have been “unable to manage the scale and number of camels that congregate in dry conditions.”

Not surprisingly, the operation has attracted criticism. Some readers are appalled that thousands of more animals will die, following more than a billion animals perishing in the wildfires sweeping across Australia. According to Chris Dickman, an ecologist at the University of Sydney, “without any doubt at all,” the losses have already exceeded 1 billion. He added that it was “a very conservative figure.”

Some conservationists and wildlife experts fear the fires may have wiped out entire species of animals. Small marsupials, including the dunnarts and glossy black cockatoos, may have entirely disappeared in the fires. Approximately one-third of Kangaroo Island burned in the brushfire, leaving a “scorched wasteland.”

The DEW spokesman concluded that the animals “will be destroyed in accordance with the highest standards of animal welfare.”

A statement in the article:

        They are.

All life is precious so whatever possible must be done to save the camels 

    It possible to return the desert landscape to grow  trees, grass, and other species of plants.

It is not necessary to kill any animal species.

Why do we have to kill anything, animal or human?  Humans don't drink water that the camels drink..out of streams and lakes.  Let us all pray by seeing the Camels staying hidden in the bushes so they cannot see them.  Animals are telepathic perhaps they will up our decrees.  See them hearing you and tell them to stay hidden in the bushes do not go out in the open, perhaps they can pick us up and sabe themselves.  We must try, what else can we do?

Two ways transport large drums of drinking water to 

Australia for the camels or let other countries take in as many camels as the can but to kill them is completely out of order and heavy karma could the humans guilty  live with the murder of so many camels ..out of order 

Mankind's evil never ceases.

Just for them to shot and kill one camel hurts me let alone their plan to kill 10,000 camels 

The day will come that it will hurt all but that may be a higher place than here.  Surfely we won't havfe to wait to ascend out of here as there's still so much evil in the world.  It hurts me, too, I know how you feel, Krishna.  /we gad a young dog to die and I cried for two weeks, so did my daughter. It got into poison.  Just pray that if they shoot one it will die quidckly and nogt just be injurfed and go off and have to suffer.

I still think we can send telepathic messages to stay in the bushes do not come out into the open and perhaps they will hear...animals are very telepathic. 

Take heart, Krishna, it's not over until it's over and Val is sending some small ships to frighten them back out of the clearings when seen.  The problem is so many fires,they can't run them back into the fires.

They are also transporting some of the smaller ones out to other wilderness areas...the ships he has available cannot handle the large ones but they can transport the small ones, some are being saved.  Some areas that have never seen a kangaroo may be seeing some small ones.  Anyone hear of it please let me know, I love confirmations, especially of the really out left field things Val tells me.  But strangely, he's always right. We're batting 100 percent so far.
