Dozens Of Wild Horses Die Of Thirst In Australia's Heatwave

When Ralph Turner arrived at his usual swimming spot, Deep Hole, about 12 miles from the remote Ltyentye Apurte (Santa Teresa) community in Australia's Northern Territory, he couldn't believe his eyes.

The 330-foot waterhole was dried up and the bodies of dozens of wild horses were strewn along its bed.

"I just couldn't believe it.

I'd never seen anything like it.

I didn't stop to count but there were lots and lots of them.

It was devastating," Turner told CNN.
