(NaturalNews) Thousands of cattle recently turned up dead in various Vietnamese provinces, reportedly due to the long cold spell that has hit the area in recent weeks. Officials from the Veterinary Department of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) had allegedly been working with local cities and provinces to help keep animals fed and warm once reports emerged of them dying, but such efforts largely failed as thousands more continued to die across the country.

According to reports, the province of Cao Bang experienced the worst losses with nearly 2,000 cattle deaths, followed by Lang Son with 1,380 and Son Law with 1,300, all supposedly due to cold weather. However, no specific scientific testing results were revealed proving that the deaths were truly caused by the cold weather, including simple pieces of evidence like thermostat readings or autopsy reports.

In many other parts of the world, farmers raising cattle have done so in much worse cold conditions than those allegedly experienced in Vietnam, which raises questions about what is truly causing these deaths. North Dakota, for instance, experiences temperatures as low as -60 degrees Fahrenheit during the winter, but animals somehow survive this type of weather year after year.

The Vietnamese cattle deaths follow a trail of other mysterious animals deaths that all began occurring right around the start of 2011. Many of those deaths remain unexplained, while others have been attributed to strange causes like winter storms and even drunkenness. Yet few, if any, of these death cases have been conclusively explained with actual scientific evidence.
