‘Fly-Pocalypse’ in Russian Town
A farmer in Russia’s Sverdlovsk region allegedly fertilized his field with chicken litter and unwittingly unleashed a fly-pocalypse, according to local news reports.
Footage recently captured by state news agency Channel One Russia and shared online June 13 revealed unsettling views from the village of Lazorevy. In the video, piles of dead and near-dead flies cover floors, tables and other surfaces in villagers’ homes. Meanwhile, outdoors, seething swarms of flies gather on roads, yards and fields.
