Iceland farmer's hurry to save animals after volcano eruption

April 18, 2010

Farmers near the Eyjafjallajokull glacier where the volcano recently erupted have been hurrying to keep their livestock from ingesting the ash, which can cause internal bleeding, long-term bone damage and teeth loss, according to an article by the Associated Press.

The volcanic ash has spread over large parts of Europe, putting air travel at a standstill, but is the worst in the rural regions near the volcano.

Cattle, sheep, and horses are most farms' specialties in Iceland, according to the article.
