Scientists have expressed outrage over plans to kill camels in Australia due to their excess flatulence.
The latest suggested action in the war against global warming has been condemned as "false and stupid" with the animals being blamed for a problem that is believed to be man-made. "We believe that the good-hearted people and innovating nation of Australia can come up with better and smarter solutions than eradicating camels in inhumane ways," the International Society of Camelid Research and Development has said.
The scheme is the brainchild of an Adelaide-based commercial company, Northwest Carbon, a land and animal management consultancy, which proposes whacking feral camels in exchange for carbon credits.
