A swarm of locusts descended on southern Russian region of Dagestan, infesting at least 100,000 acres on Tuesday, prompting authorities to declare an emergency and take various measures to tackle the situation, including spraying pesticides from tractors and airplanes. The locusts are devouring all grass, bush and trees, and threatening local agriculture and cattle breeding as animals get no place to graze.
