dead animalsThe prolonged dry weather has hit the livestock of thousands of households in the Kang district of southwestern Nimroz province where the dwellers rely mostly on agriculture and livestock for living.

Every livestock had lost 80-90% animals, including sheep and cows, said a resident.

Many have left their homes and migrated to other parts of the province.

Another resident said most of animals had died because of fewer meadows in the area.

Wheat crops were grown in the fields this year, but to no avail.

Kang district Chief Mohammad Juma Alami said the Lashkari canal between Zaranj, the provincial capital, and Kang could be a solution to the problem.

“The cleaning of the Lashkari canal would allow water flow to the district,” said the Chief.
