The Realities Of Economic Collapse Happening In Venezuela Right Now.

People think this could never happen here in the land of plenty.

Sure it can,when the trucks stop rolling, this is what you can look forward to.

Hungry Venezuelans Hunt Dogs, Cats, Pigeons as Food Runs Out

Ramón Muchacho, Mayor of Chacao in Caracas, said the streets of the capital of Venezuela are filled with people killing animals for food.

Through Twitter, Muchacho reported that in Venezuela, it is a “painful reality” that people “hunt cats, dogs and pigeons” to ease their hunger.

Don't miss that bit of irony there, they have Twitter but no food.

The crisis in Venezuela is worsening everyday due in part to shortages reaching 70 percent. This to go along with the world’s highest level of inflation.

The population’s desperation has begun to show, with looting and robberies for food increasing all the time. This Sunday, May 1, six Venezuelan military officials were arrested for stealing goats to ease their hunger, as there was no food at the Fort Manaure military base.

The week before, various regions of the country saw widespread looting of shopping malls, pharmacies, supermarkets and food trucks, all while people chanted “we are hungry.”

The Venezuelan Chamber of Food (Cavidea) said many businesses only have 15 days worth of inventory. Production has been effected as a result of a shortage of raw materials, as well as exhausted national and international supply resources.

This is the result of Socialism and the a government wholly dependent on oil for it's income, when the price of oil has dropped like a hot rock in the last year.

There is no light at the end of the tunnel here and you can start looking any day now for calls for the international community to start calling it a crisis and asking to send aid by the boat load.

You can also start expecting calls for the overthrow of their government any day now.

Ukrainians and North Koreans resorted to cannibalism as a result of starvation (in the Ukrainian case, deliberate), so yes, it is possible.
