Hundreds of #cattle dead due to the worst #drought in 30 years in #Tabasco, #Mexico

Livestock Alert

The Los Ríos area of the southeastern Mexican state of Tabasco is suffering the worst drought in the last 30 years , causing an 80 percent stoppage in agricultural activity and heavy losses for livestock .

The largest river in Mexico, the Usumacinta , registers historically low levels, while in Balancán and Tenosique, municipalities bordering Guatemala , the arid landscape extends over the plain over crops and killing the herd of hunger and thirst that exceeds 390 thousand heads

The cracked earth is visible in large areas, with crops of sorghum and corn that remain standing, but without life, and there is no fishing for the drying of the rivers.

In the ranches, the jagüeyes-deep pools of water-are full of mud, and near them abound the dead and dying carcasses.

Balancán, one of the municipalities that make up the Los Ríos area, authorities attribute the balance to the absence of rain.
