Guards removing thousands of gazelles caught in wire border fence PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 19 May 2008
ImageHundreds of gazelles were reported dead this week after being snagged in barbed wire at the Mongolian border as they sought to cross into Russia. 

Experts believe some 100,000 gazelles are migrating from Mongolia to Russia in search of food and water following the worst drought in 20 years in Mongolia. 

Mongolia and Russia have begun talks to take down the border fence in Daursky Nature Reserve to prevent further deaths among gazelles. 

In the mean time, bowls of water have been put out for the gazelles by the Russian border guards and guards from the Daursky Nature Reserve.  

Some claims put the figure caught in wire fencing as high as 20,000 gazelles, with most being freed by guards.
