It’s so cold in Kazakhstan right now that animals are freezing to death! (videos and pictures)

By Strange Sounds -Jan 21, 2021

Animals have been frozen solid after temperatures dropped to -59.8°F (-51°C) in Kazakhstan on January 20, 2021.

Videos show both a sheep, two dogs, a rat? and a Saiga antelope frozen to death amid bitter conditions sweeping across the Central Asian nation.

The sheep was probably eating in a field before dying in the arctic conditions.

The dogs seem to have died instantly, freezing in place, as if they suddenly had no air to breathe anymore.

Same for the Saiga Antelope, which by the way keep dying from a mysterious cause.

I don’t know what the rat was trying to do climbing on the back of one the dogs, but it was probably looking for a warm and sheltered place.

This strange event reminds me of similar images of a hare and a dog that froze to death amid extremely cold winter conditions in Kazakhstan in 2018.

Two days ago, a temperature of -61°F (about -52°C) was recorded in Yakutsk, a city in neighbouring Russia. One of the more chilling temperatures was recorded in Delyankir at a whopping -72.4°F (-58°C) on January 18th, 2021.https://strangesounds.org/2021/01/siberia-cold-wave-record-temperature-video.html/embed#?secret=2oZyr2XJtp

Parts of eastern Russia and surrounding countries are registering temperatures below -40°C (-40°F) since the middle of December, courtesy of the bone-chilling polar vortex lingering over Siberia. This is the longest cold spell in fourteen years in the region. (Click to Source)
