Chile: Wildfires kill over 17,000 animals

Santiago de Chile, Feb 22 (Prensa Latina) Over 17,000 farm animals died as consequence of wildfires ravaging center-south Chile, as reported by the National Institute of Agricultural Development (INDAP).

According to INDAP, out of dead animals, 13,554 are poultry birds, 1,783 cattle, 560 goats, 407 sheep and 244 pigs, among other species.
