Herdsmen in a village in Horgos and more than 800 sheep were trapped in pastures by the heavy snow before moving to winter pastures.

Local police moved fast to help them finish the annual winter transfer with emergency materials such as ropes, cotton-padded clothes and medical kit to guarantee the winter trip.
