the camels are at a 'pest' population, they do terrible damage to crops and land structure in various regions, on big pastoral 'farms' shooters are used all the time to keep numbers to a sustainable amount,..... then ye have the donkeys, goats, dogs, cats, and yes the rabbits in the same or bigger numbers!!

Just finished reading Bruce Springsteen's autobiography "Born to Run.....all i can say is what a wonderful read it was....one of the best autobiography's i've read ...Great insight into the man , his life , family, bands & songs....he leaves nothing out ....very personal.....especially his relationship with his father, Bruce's battles with depression , reading of his early life was like listening to his first two albums....it's amazing listening back to both of them and hearing every word of the songs are about him and his surroundings .....
I highly recommend this book ...even if you can't stand Springsteen READ IT...
you won't be disappointed

reading 'barney greatrex' ,its a biography about an Australian who joined the RAAF in ww2 ,and was posted to bomber command. only into it a few chapters and its clear he`s not a fan of the all out bombing campaign, maybe that's in hindsight. so far he has completed 19 'missions' , mostly over berlin, on the twentieth he`s shot down [that's where I`m up to] I know he gets picked up by the French resistance and spends some time with them.

A lot were not in favour of the bombing missions.......but Harris and Al Speer among others knew better......

read it a while ago d.t, I used to hang about in that circle , one of the mates married a sister of his [not those two!] , I was [incarcerated with his brother john in the bridewell once] justice o`huaidh again [that's another story, drink comes into it naturally].

another of the mates was sentenced to 12 yrs for 'activities' in the gang...... its better said over a pint....theres a you tube video of him being interview/stalked outside the dole office by an investigative reporter who he makes a dick out of, during the interview he stops an 'innocent' man and asks if he knows who he is , the innocent man says no .....the innocent man is the twelve year man I mentioned earlier.....look it up yourself its class.
