Kill a camel, save the world

Florida may have a python problem, but Australia has it worse. They are overrun with camels and their farts. It may sound like a strange problem, it may also sound strange that there are camels in Australia in the first place.

Let’s back up. Camels were introduced to the island nation back in 1840, likely by some Egyptian ship captain who lost a bet. Today, there are roughly 750,000 roaming around, and that should double in a decade. Plus, they are quite flatulent. The problem is that those camel farts are hurting the atmosphere.

To deal with the problem, a wildlife consultant group proposed giving carbon credits for killing camels, since it would curb emissions. It was voted down by a government committee.

This is one of the few times The Guys will side with the environmental people.
