Kudakwashe Chiveura digs for crickets to eat in Mutoko about 250 kilometres, (155 miles) north east of Harare, Saturday, Nov. 15, 2008. Grazing land has been razed by poachers burning the bush to scare rock rabbits, rodents and small animals for the cooking pot into traps and nets as people look for food. .Jackals, baboons and goats also compete with villagers for roots and wild fruits according to witness accounts. The United Nations has forecast a full scale humanitarian crisis and estimates more than 5 million people, about half the population will need food aid by the beginning of next year. Inflation in Zimbabwe, the highest in the world, pegged at over 213 million percent has spiraled out of control at a time when health and education services have collapsed.
