The camera can tell the difference between sheep and cattle and feral pests such as goats, horses, pigs, kangaroos, camels and emus.”

When animals come to feed or drink they will be forced to pass through a lane where the camera has been installed. “You could have a cattle station that has feral populations of horses or camels. The watering points are there for the cattle, so the camera would let the cattle through, but if a goat or a pig tried to get in the gate would shut against it,” he said.

I never thought of emus and camels as pests.
