Australia: Feral camels are smelly, dangerous and disruptive..

January 17, 2013

…but that’s not why we want to kill them.

A plan to give carbon credits for slaughtering camels, curbing emissions coming from their flatulence, was rejected by an Australian government committee.

The proposal by Northwest Carbon Pty, a land and animal management consultant, didn’t provide clear instructions for protecting animal welfare, and the method for assessing emission reductions was incomplete, according to a report by the Domestic Offsets Integrity Committee published yesterday on the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency’s website.

Fantastically stupid and pointless, no problem. Incomplete — a no-no. Now go back and fill out those forms in triplicate properly, guys.
