I never even knew that there were camels there. I am not usually an animal activist as such but this seems so extreme.

I am going to have to leave a comment

So what shouyld they do? Let hte camels gradually much through the whole Bush?

Don't be soft.

there has got to be a better way than culling lots of animals - a ustainable approach looking to the long term welfare - this is so shortsighted.

God I missed out on a prime KMAH then didn't I!

My DH shoots pigeons that eat farmers crops shock - I might book him the camel-safari for his 40th, thanks for the tip grin

Typical bloody human beings. Introduce a species into an environment where it was never supposed to be, wait a few decades, go 'oops, there seem to be a few too many X over here, hey, I've got an idea, why don't we have a cull? That'd be fun.'.

Australia's got form on this one - at least I suppose a cull would be more 'humane' (hah!) than bloody myxomatosis.

Surely they can market them as camel burgers or something?

Can't see it's any worse than all the cows that are killed in the UK.

Tortington Tue 28-Jul-09 23:24:43

shock camel burgers.

Tortington Tue 28-Jul-09 23:27:07

Is Rhuby OK?

Tortington Tue 28-Jul-09 23:40:15

it depends what you mean by ok!

she is in good health, the kids are good - i 'm off to see her in a couple of weeks

Well, those 2 things aren't a bad start I guess. Say hi.

Tortington Wed 29-Jul-09 07:55:14

i will thanks.

really surprised that thousands of camels will be culled and no-one cares.

i mean - i get some animals aren't aesthetically pleasing - but - camels are - they are practically a cartoon parody of themselves

Tortington Wed 29-Jul-09 09:04:36

angry @lack of camel lovers

safaris and burgers people

FAQtothefuture Wed 29-Jul-09 09:07:01

well they cull dear in the UK every year.........

You know we should be glad that we are the most intelligent species - otherwise someone would probably be culling us (humans) too wink

Tortington Wed 29-Jul-09 09:08:25

but - safaris - iots just barbaric
