Hungry Venezuelans resort to eating flamingos and anteaters
Hungry Venezuelans have resorted to eating flamingos and anteaters to fight off starvation. Last November remains were found of 8 flamingos, their breast and torso’s sliced out , leaving their heads, spindly legs and vivid feathers scattered.
There are other signs that food shortages have led to the slaughtering of animals not considered meat: giant anteaters, for one. The Zulia University investigators say they have kept records to show that dozens of the slow-moving creatures, classified as “vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, have also been killed for food.
In the city’s dump, more evidence of hungry Venezuelans: dismembered dogs, cats, donkeys, horses and pigeons have been found since last year, all skinned or plucked, with signs of having been eaten, according to the city’s garbage teams.
“Sometimes we only find the animal’s heads, guts and legs. We used to see this very little in the past, but this practice is now out of control and on the rise,” said Robert Linares, who works in waste disposal at the dump for the city.
A day earlier, he said, he’d found the remains of a dog, skinned and dismembered on the streets of Santa Lucia. More evidence of hungry Venezuelans.
This is the end result of Socialism people. US politicians and leftist will say Socialism and Communism just haven’t been done right yet. Everywhere it has been tried starvation is the end result. In the Soviet Union and East Germany there were food lines just to get bread. In North Korea satellite pictures at night are almost total darkness. They cannot feed their people or even keep lights on.
In Venezuela the starvation is referred to as the “Maduro diet” after President Nicolas Maduro. The once-wealthy country has been plagued with the worst inflation rate in the world, close to 700 per cent last year, according to International Monetary fund. A survey by three universities in Caracas found that 87 percent of Venezuelans in 2015 did’nt have enough money to buy sufficient food for their families.
Not having enough to eat has become so common it even has a nickname: “the Maduro diet.” I guess not having affordable health care you can actually use and find a doctor within 3 hours that will accept it in the US has a nickname also “Obamacare.”
