A farm worker in South Africa

According to South Africa’s farmers’ union, working on a South African farm is the country’s most dangerous occupation, with twice as many farm workers killed as police officers each year. And it’s not because of over-enthusiastic cows or dangerous machinery. Afriforum and the Transvaal Agricultural Union (TAU) reported that there were 67 farm murders over 277 farm attacks in 2014, which the organization believes is the highest figure since 1990.
