Erupting volcano imperils two million sheep in Patagonia

Chile, S.A.
Two million sheep in the Argentine Patagonia province of Chubut are suffering the consequences of the ash blanket spewed by the eruption of the volcano Chaiten in neighboring Chile according to primary estimates from local authorities. "The situation is very serious because we already had sheep suffering from the drought and scarce grassland and unprepared for these exceptional circumstances." It’s still very difficult to quantify losses because the problem has not ceased and “we have to wait some sort of normality in the Andes to assess the real magnitude of the eruption’s consequences."
