Australia & New Zealand Hunting : Australia: Big game hunting in Oz outback

on 2013/6/11 14:03:37 (720 reads)

BIG game hunting in the Australian outback could become a tourist attraction under a scheme to allow the shooting of camels, water buffalo and other animals.

Feral animals would be shot and killed by game hunters travelling to the Australian outback under a "conservation hunting" plan by the Shooters and Fishers Party, which is preparing to field candidates around the country in the federal election.

Up to one million feral camels - the largest herd on earth - run wild in Central Australia, roaming through parts of South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland.

First imported to Australia in the 1800s from India, the Middle East and Afghanistan as a cheap and hardy means of transport, the camel population has skyrocketed.

Mainly single-humped Dromedaries, with a few double-humped species, the camels are a hazard to land owners when they storm camps and settlements in search of water.

The Central Land Council said last month that although thousands of feral animals including dinkies and camels were dying due to a lack of food and water and a cull was necessary, the destruction of water holes by the large animals was having an impact on native species which relied on the same drinking sources.

Periodic culls of the camels take place, but Mr Borsak said a scheme of "conservation hunting" of feral animals should gain the approval of ecologists because they competed with native animals for traditional food sources.

Camels can travel up to 70 kms a day and are known to drink large amounts of water, devastate aquatic ecosystems with dung and destroy infrastructure such as fences and tanks.

The Shooters and Fishers Party will announce its list of candidates in the next month.
