The dromedaries were brought to Australia by the British, probably from India and the Middle East. However, in Somalia people are convinced that the dromedaries come from there, in particular from the former British colony of Somaliland.

The president of the shepherd’s association in Somaliland, Mustafe Ali Deeq, says that dromedaries are “very dear” to his countrymen and that they immediately come in second place after humans. Australia should therefore save the lives of the animals and send them back where they belong.
