Thousands of sheep, and their shepherds, trapped by early snow – Snowdrifts almost 7 feet deep

Six thousand sheep became trapped in the French Alps at 2,000m altitude after heavy snowfalls on Friday night took shepherds by surprise.

Some 6,000 sheep and 100 cattle got stuck in the Col du Gandon mountain pass in the Savoie in the south-east France  along with their shepherds on Friday the night 25 September after early snow coupled with icy winds created snowdrifts of up to two meters (almost 7 ft) high.

Locals managed to get emergency food supplies to the flocks on Sunday.

Don`t worry there is no significant man- made global warming. The global warming scare is not driven by science but driven by politics. Al Gore and the UN are dead wrong on climate fears. The IPCC process is a perversion of science.
