Australia orders to kill 10,000 camels to stop them from drinking too much water amid drought

Are we dumb? Yes, we are. We are not referring to someone who cannot hear anything and have impairment with the ears. When we say ‘dumb’, it is not the physical dumbness that people have, we are talking about the ‘phycological dumbness’ that we have.

Man is the only living being on Earth that is created to think and dominate over the other voiceless creatures. We are so dumb that we cannot do anything good to restore the planet.

Animals have been experiencing immense torture at the hands of human beings who think they are the only living creatures to enjoy the resources, freedom and many more on Earth.

Man can do anything tight from rearing a bird or an animal to slaughtering it for his own table purpose. But, he doesn’t realise that animals too deserve freedom and everything they want.

The voiceless creatures end up getting trapped at the hands of the evil humans who are greedy enough to kill them, eat them and make money out of them. This is because the so-called other living beings cannot protest against the killings or the discrimination against them.

In shocking news from Australia, more than 10,000 camels will be shot by professional firearms experts from helicopters in order to prevent them from drinking too much water in drought-afflicted South Australia.

The shooters will start the cull on Wednesday after an order from Aboriginal leaders in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) lands.

According to locals, the animals have been entering communities and causing damage when they look for any available water source, 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,” Marita Baker, a board member of the APY executive, told The Australian.

A spokesperson for the South Australia Department of Environment and Water added that the increasing number of camels caused several problems in the region.

“This has resulted in significant damage to infrastructure, danger to families and communities, increased grazing pressure across the APY lands and critical animal welfare issues as some camels die of thirst or trample each other to access water,” the spokesperson on the condition of anonymity told

“In some cases, dead animals have contaminated important water sources and cultural sites.”

The massive operation to control the camel population, estimated to total 1.2 million across the country, is expected to take five days.

It should be noted that their carcasses will be left to dry off before they are burned or buried as reported by ABC News.

Camels were also introduced to Australia from India and Afghanistan during the 19th century and were used for transport and construction. If culling doesn’t happen, then the camel population would double every eight to 10 years.
