So who's up for a trip to the outback???

Sounds like they need to organize a few cullings to bring the population back into control. Especially considering the feral camels are an invasive species in OZ.

chicken flavor

I think it tastes like.....chicken. Ever wonder whoever made things taste why every thing taste like chicken? Did the flavors run out so chicken flavor had to be used again and again? Why chicken? What if chicken tated like something else? Why not bubblegum or watermelon or barbecue? What if what we know as chicken flavor isnt because it was supposed to be something else like snake for example but we say it is chicken flavor not snake flavor? Why is it that when something tastes bad it is said it tastes like donkey and not chicken? Ever taste a donkey? Not me.

Camels are supposed to be surprisingly hardy and tough to kill. I'd go bigger than you think you need.
