    Horrific. Words escape me. The wider reporting is this is so poor.

    Gobsmacking scale of the die -off, if it is a natural phenomenon , not much can be done I suppose, I wonder how genetically diverse saiga are, whether that's a factor . Although I do think gathering them up into a pit pretty questionable surely better to rot down where they lie and have all that nutrients retuned to the grasslands. I wonder if the populations remaining will have greater recruitment levels if they can access all this extra grazing? Bound to be heartbreaking for the scientists studying them though.

    Whats the chance of it being another hemorrhagic virus carried by livestock? There is a very big reluctance worldwide to accept that our domestic livestock are carriers for viruses which effect wildlife. An example would be MCF in Britain. At least they aren't blaming hunters for this dieback.
