“I HAVE A DAMAGE OF APPROXIMATELY 60 THOUSAND LIRA”

At that time, lightning struck the tree under which the animals were lying. When I ran to the corral, I saw a lot of animals lying on the ground. In the morning, officials from the Provincial Directorate of Agriculture and Forestry carried out a damage assessment study. I have a loss of approximately 60 thousand liras” said.
The dead sheep were buried in the pits dug with the construction equipment.
