While parts of the USA are frozen, thousands of animals are being killed by extremely hot temperatures in Argentina and Uruguay. Can you imagine that? Hundreds of cows falling dead in pastures and chicken asphyxiated in their farms as if their blood had boiled up and then evaporated. This is totally abnormal! This is completely crazy!
The first video was recorded in Trenque Lauquen, Argentina and shows some of the 700 bulls that died at the ranch ‘La Calendaria’ due to the heat record of the last few days:
The second video was recorded by a local farmer in campo de América (Bs As), Argentina as he walks through his pastures and describes how his cows died during the heat wave of the recent days:
On January 30, 2019, about 100 animals died again due to heat stress at Liniers Market in Buenos Aires after the ‘meat’ auctions. Some 70 reportedly died shortly after the morning auctions and another 30 at the berth or trucks.
The deadly heat wave is currently hitting the entire Buenos Aires region with temperatures that exceeded 45°C degrees.
It however seems that this wave of hot temperature has also reached Uruguay where more than 100,000 chickens have already died from consequences of the extreme heat. According to specialists, increased chicken mortality is normal in summer, but such a peak was almost unprecedented.e
Extreme cold in the North and extreme hot in the South… A normal Winter/Summer? Or there is something else going on?
