Snow kills 170 domestic animals in Siberia in three days

 

Strong winds in the Tuva republic (Siberia) have killed more than 170 domestic animals, local officials said. A quick investigation revealed that the cattle died due to hypothermia.

The snowstorm struck the region last week. Strong winds were blowing in the region for several days. Bad weather caused difficulties for shepherds. Animals were stall-housed for three days. Considerable stocks of fodder had to be used during this time period.

According to preliminary data, about 70 heads of cattle, including yaks, and more than 100 heads of small cattle, died.

Experts with the Ministry of Agriculture, and Veterinary Service constitute acts of the losses of farm animals. To support livestock farmers, local authorities will allocate the funds earmarked for the development of yak and sheep.
