    Due to clean lineage camels are exported to the Middle East, and presumably meat also. They are used for meat in Australia, an emerging source of protien. They are also used for hipster fad camel milk. They are also a pest. The PEST animals need to be managed, like it or not. Australia is vast. Practical management is vital. Protection of Australian wild environment is vital. Some camels will die, just as they would in time anyways. Life is death is life. Introducing lions and jackals is ridiculously stupid. Pretend they eat all the camels (ergo, dead camels...) and a whole bunch of other animals, then what. We have a lion and jackal problem. Think people, I dare you.......

    I thought that we sold them back to their native countries as the strain was good here. It certainly seems a waste to just kill them. In a smart world they would be used as meat for human consumption.

    Once again, humans create the problem and animals have to pay the ultimate price. Sickens me!

    And yet, people have floated the idea of importing and releasing endangered rhinos or other non-native species... Surely, nothing could go wrong...

    I remember seeing the wild dromedaries in their migration across Saudi Arabia, but why cannot we relocate Giraffe Rhino and Elephants, etc, to a more benign country sanctuary?

    You could chop a camel in its hump and drink the milk out.
