This is a fairly nuanced problem as no one likes mass killing of defenseless animals but as a lover of native plants and animals I support and defend this initiative. You need to choose which animals you want, the feral preditors, food competitiors/ destroyers or the native animals who are in fact the defenceless and threatened species. I'm not certain that the drought has helped eliminate the need for a cull, it probably has intensified it.

I'm appalled at what my own country has done here, they should have found a better way. The camels should not have even been here, these camels are the descendants of the creatures dumped by the explorers way back in the early days. They deserved better treatment, it's not their fault. Noted.

Noted - I believe every, and I mean every living creature has a place on earth and does not deserve to be killed by humans - who gave them the right to decide which animals live and which die.
