Hump Day

What better to post about on Hump Day than camels (Camelus dromedarius)? According to this report at Yahoo! News, Australia is having such a big problem with increased numbers of feral camels that they're about to start a population reduction shooting them...using helicopters. Animal rights' groups are predictably outraged. The camels are a leftover introduction from before there were handy things like cars and trucks to transport goods. Interested readers may also want to check out this article filed by MSNBC last December.

Tip of the virtual hat to Cat Out Loud for posting about this story.
