Australia is flooded with camels, breeding too fast, what to do with 1 million camels?

Australia is flooding with camels and multiplying too fast, what to do with 1 million camels?

Australia is a country with open, flat terrain and a paradise for wildlife. Here, you can see the largest herd of wild camels in the world, roaming leisurely without any worries and troubles. However, the Australian government has had enough of this large group of rogues, wishing they all disappeared overnight. This makes people wonder why the camels in Australia are so disgusting? Why are they flooding this way? As an immigrant country, the arrival of camels in Australia can be traced back to the 18th century. At that time, a large number of British people came to settle in Australia. Inspired by colonial ideas, the new Europeans advocated exploration and development, and vowed to travel every inch of land. In order to better realize this plan, the British brought a large number of animals and plants from their hometowns, hoping to help them through the instinct of these animals. These animals include bulls that can travel through woods and bushes, and are good at finding delicious roots. Pigs and mules familiar with rugged rocks and hills, and, of course, dromedary camels that can get out of the desert. With the excavation of gold mining areas, camels gradually became the best partners of immigrants. This is because the inland settlements are far apart from the gold mining areas discovered, and the climate in Australia is very dry. Based on such climatic and geographical characteristics, thirst and hunger-resistant camels beat cattle and horses and become the best shipping options. Therefore, in order to promote the development of trade, a large number of dromedary camels were introduced into Australia. In 1907, the British imported nearly 20,000 dromedary camels to Australia again. These dromedary camels mainly come from India, Afghanistan and Arabia. They have slender limbs, thick hair, heavy eyelids and nostrils that can be opened and closed. The adult dromedary can reach 3 meters in length and the shoulder height is generally about 2 meters. , the average weight is between 400-700 kilograms, the hump that stands upright on the back is a hump that can store about 35 kilograms of fat, and is a veritable supply station. Camels can convert fat and walk in the desert for about three days without eating or drinking. It is undeniable that this convenient and heat-resistant "transportation tool" did play a huge role in the early days of the inland. However, with the development of technology Development and the invention of the internal combustion engine, the industrial revolution brought a new means of transport - the car to Australia, camels seem to be no longer popular at this time. So, where did these camels go out of the era? They were not hunted, they were just abandoned in the wild by their owners. Due to the lack of deadly natural enemies and a digestive system that can digest poisonous plants, the released camels have sprung up like mushrooms after a spring rain. In 1969, there were between 15,000 and 20,000 wild camels active in the Australian outback. Four decades later, that number has doubled nearly fifty-fold—in 2008, Australia had more than one million wild camels. What does this number mean? That means Australia has more camels than the world's wild camels combined, with disastrous consequences, trampling over herders' fences, stealing fodder and vegetables and draining water reserves. All kinds of bad behaviors have caused people to complain, and the government has thought of many methods: one is to use helicopters and vehicles to shoot, the other is to transport live camels to India through export; the third is to slaughter trade meat for export It is estimated that by 2020 , a total of 300,000 camels were killed at gunpoint, but only 5,000 camels were slaughtered each year for human consumption. This shows that eating is not the best solution to the problem, and exporting is obviously not going to work, after all, it is a time-consuming and labor-intensive business. What do you think of the camel infestation in Australia? Welcome to leave a message in the message area to discuss, well, this issue is here, thank you for watching!
