Camel cull 'is stop-gap measure'

Australian authorities in the Northern Territory plan to kill 6,000 wild camels, after they over-ran a small outback town.

A drought in the region has caused camels to travel further afield in search of water.

Glenys Oogjes, executive director of Animals Australia, discusses the cull.
