    Analysis of State, Territory and Commonwealth legislation affecting the management of feral camels was undertaken for those jurisdictions where the species is or could be a problem. Eight areas of analysis were undertaken; in each area inconsistencies were found that are likely to affect the management of feral camels: i. Ownership ii. Legal obligations to control iii. Legal obligations for welfare iv. Access v. Welfare over-riding other access restrictions vi. Culling vii. Processing viii. Fencing and transport Recommendations have been made to ameliorate these legal impediments to camel control as follows: i. Ownership ii. Legal obligations to control iii. Legal obligations for welfare iv. Access v. Welfare over-riding other access restrictions vi. Culling vii. Processing viii. Transport
