Abstract

This book is an illustrated guide to controlling feral camels in rural and remote Australia.

The principles and practices in this book are based on the following:

  • Australian standard and guidelines for the land transport of camels
  • Code of practice for the humane control of feral camels
  • Standard operating procedures for mustering and ground shooting of feral camels.

The book uses over 150 cartoons, drawings, diagrams, and photographs to illustrate the text and make the content more accessible. It includes an introduction which describes camel handling hazards, camel body condition scoring, and ways to identify both camel bulls in rut and camel cows in late pregnancy. Indigenous Australian workers and community members are featured extensively in the illustrations.
