Drought wipes out Brazil cattle ranches

With no rain in a year and a half, many cows around the town of Serrita have starved to death.

    A drought is affecting millions of people in northeastern Brazil. Among the worst-hit areas is the town of Serrita, which is heavily dependant on cattle ranching.

    With no rain in a year and a half, many of the animals in the area have starved to death.
