“ALICE SPRINGS, Australia, Nov. 26, 2009

“Australia Plans to Kill Thirsty Camels
Roughly 6,000 Camels, Which are not Native to Australia, Overran Outback Town Looking for Water

“It is common to see some camels in the remote community, but a continuing drought and an early heat wave have dried up other water sources and forced great numbers of them into town. Much of Australia is gripped by some of the worst drought conditions on record.

“(AP) Australian authorities plan to corral about 6,000 wild camels with helicopters and gun them down after they overran a small Outback town in search of water, trampling fences, smashing tanks and contaminating supplies.

“The Northern Territory government announced its plan Wednesday for Docker River, a town of 350 residents where thirsty camels have been arriving daily for weeks because of drought conditions in the region…”

Just because Sarah Palin likes to shoot moose from helicopters doesn’t make it right for Australia, which until now has been a friendly bunch of blokes. You brought the camels in (well, your great-great-grandads did) to help you; now you’re gonna slaughter them because they’re thirsty? The country who makes money from thirst (Foster’s somes to mind). No, not right. Do it, and we’ll have to remove the koalas, and other cute marsupials. Would you do that to the aborigines? Oh…. well, yes, I guess you would.
