Silence of the lambs in New Zealand

22 Sep 10 - Tens of thousands of lambs have died over the past five days after snow and bitterly cold weather swept over the south, says this article on TVNZ News.

The deaths have attracted animal welfare concerns that ewes and their offspring may have died because of a lack of shelter or food.

"We find this incredibly upsetting and distressing because every stock death like this gets to us," said Federated Farmers' adverse events spokesman, Southland sheep and beef farmer David Rose.

"Farmers are doing their utmost to keep stock alive, but these weather systems have been unrelenting," said Rose. "There are some people in town who don't understand that sheep and cattle live outdoors."

"The spring storm of 2010 is frankly the worst in a generation," said Rose. "The last big dump of snow we had was 14 years ago in the winter of 1996, while the last time we had anything this severe was 38 years ago, in 1972".
