The situation in the flood areas is dramatic for people, but also for wildlife. Flooded animal shelters, broken stables and destroyed feed reserves are being reported from everywhere. Many domestic, farm and circus animals have to be evacuated and there is a shortage of food because hay, straw and other feed supplies have been rendered unusable by the water.

Because helping people is of course the top priority, there is a lack of resources to enable the animals to lead a species-appropriate life in all their misfortune. In various places, there can also be dangers for animals on the road, as there are increased deer crossings due to open fences.
