Update on massive Saiga die-off in Central Asia

In just a few weeks, half of the world’s population of Saiga antelopes are dead from an unidentified emerging disease. My last post from 10 days ago put the fatality count at 30,000; it has since been revised to 120,000 dead in less than a month.

Scientists are still unsure what is causing these deaths.
