Blizzard in Yushu Autonomous Prefecture leaves several animals dead
DHARAMSHALA, Feb. 13: Heavy snowstorm in the area of Dzato (Chinese: Zaduo) County, Thridu County (Chinese: Chengdu) and Chumarlab County(Chinese: Qumalai) in Yushu Prefecture has left 13960 herd animals and 219 wild animals dead until February 11, reported Yushu Prefecture Disaster Relief Work Emergency.

1.5 feet of snow at 5,000 meters’ altitude and the accompanying wind chill and drifting snow caused the livestock to succumb to bitter cold and hunger while people were left trapped inside the house without water or electricity.

Chinese state media reported that local authorities had sent veterinarians, medicine and animal feed to the hard-hit areas.

This is believed to be the most hard-hitting blizzard in the last 20 years in the region.
The local Tibetan villagers in the area, heavily depended on livestock endured much hardship and retrieved 5525 carcasses of animals with the help of local monks and state workers.

The worst of the snow has now cleared away from the region, and the next few days should be mostly dry, reported Chinese state media.

Independent Tibetan researchers in exile have suggested that with the state-sponsored resettlement of Tibetan nomads after 2003 from expansive grassland to restricted settlements may have played a role in exacerbating the situation.
