Swarm of locusts invading Russia looks like the end of the world

The year 2016 was pretty bad, but hey, it’s 2017 now and we have a swarm of locusts invading the Earth. Everything is fine.

During a second incident in another location in southern Russia, a truck driver traveling along a highway in the republic of Dagestan captured a gray cloud slowly approaching the vehicle.

The sanctuary, Devils at Cradle, is a conservation facility to help observe the lifecycles of the marsupial and the threats which face them. Read more…
