Thousands of alligators and cattle are currently dying on Bananal Island, Brazil caught in lakes that completely dried up.
It hasn’t rained since 140 days in the region. Water and fish populations have almost completely disappeared on the largest river island in the world. Eleven cities have been put in emergency and 27 are others on alert, because of lack of water.
The terrifying video shows apocalyptic images of dried up alligators and cattle caught in mud and waiting for their death near São Félix do Araguaia on Bananal Island. Look at the calf jammed together with a bunch of alligators in the mud:
Many animals have died and those that have survived are clustered in puddles of mud as rivers across the Bananal island have dried up completely
Moreover, cattle raised by indigenous people are also dying because of the apocalyptic drought.
Now, Brasilia has sent a team of scientists on-site to rescue alligators and other animals in lagoons that dried up due to prolonged drought near São Félix do Araguaia on Bananal Island.
According to scientific reports, one of the reptiles was more than four meters long and had to be immobilized by five men and two women. Alligators are taken to nearby ponds that still have water… temporarily!
