Australian government took a drastic decision of killing more than 10K camels during a five-day campaign as they drink too much water amid the wildfires. Yes, what you read is true. This is how insensitive we have become. It is reported that the authorities will send helicopters to kill up to 10,000 camels starting from Wednesday till five days.
Marita Baker, an Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara executive board member said that the camels were causing problems in her community of Kanypi. "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,'' she said.
Since November, Australia is on fire and the planned killing of the camels have come as a decision in this regard. The bushfires have already caused more than a dozen people and nearly 480 million animals deaths and on top of it, deliberately killing camels is unacceptable by the majority of the people around the world.
This is not the first time as in 1958, China's republic former chairman Mao Zedong ordered all the sparrows to be killed because they ate too much grain. This caused one of the worst environmental disasters in history. Now that nature is already taking its toll in Australia and killing animals became a debatable topic. It is sad news that Camels are being killed for just being themselves!
