Australia To Cull Outback Camels
I've always associated camels with the Middle East and didn't even know that Australia has over a million free-range camels which are threatening the ecological balance of the Outback.
I think everyone agrees the camels have to go, but the methods are in dispute.
[The BLOG note: The awesome photo used for illustrative purposes comes from the National Geographic site. The dark camels you see are really camel shadows. The real camels are the lighter areas below the camel shadows. Click on the photo and see for yourself.]
