    Feral goats certainly do that.
    There are literally millions in Oz
    They have always been feral, and I am buggered if I know just how and when they were introduced .
    Fences do not hold them in to any 1 location.
    These days they are worth $60-$70 a head, and are mustered on motorbikes and choppers, and shipped off to market.
    Can't say as I blame the farmers for that.
    It really is amazing just how many are out there

    Cheers
    Bucky

    Any species introduced into an environment without natural predators

    will over populate said environment...

    That's why man has to step in and cull the herd.

    We had camels for some time in Texas as well. If I'm not mistaken the feral herds have all been taken out.

    I imagine you could eat it if starving...

    I've seen Anthony Bordain eat it. He seemed to have no complaints.

    Well - if camel meat comes in parts, they can export my part. :p

    But I guess I would try it if I had the chance. Could be I've eaten worse.

    That could explain why those terrorist fellas from the Middle East are terrorists. You never hear of beef-fed Texans becoming terrorists - am I right on this Austin?

    I think that depends on how you define terrorism.
