It has now been established that at least 900 ostriches have died in the Little Karoo floods. The number is expected to increase as more farmers are expected to hand in reports. Hein Jonker, chairperson of Agri Klein Karoo, says the floods came only a few weeks after the European Union ban of all ostrich meat from the area following the outbreak of bird flu. Jonker says this was a double blow for the farmers.
"It is very difficult for the ostrich farmers at the moment. Financially everyone is struggling and we will be asking from the government for assistance," Jonker said.
