Thousands of dead pigs have been found in the Huangpu River since last week. A report on the Chinese news portal Xinmin.cn, said that 3,323 dead pigs had been found through Sunday night.




Shanghai authorities said they believed flotilla of pigs came from neighboring Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces and had been dumped in the river after they died. More than 20,000 pigs are reported to have died since the beginning of this year in Jiaxing alone, where a pig breeding facility is located about 50 miles to the west of Shanghai at the upper reaches of the Huangpu River. Some of the pigs had ear tags identifying them as coming from Jiaxing.




“This is obviously threatening the local water resources,’’ said Ma Jun, a leading environmental expert. “Usually, we see dead livestock in the river during the flooding season, but this a different case and the numbers are large.’’


I am speechless, as during a natural disaster I could understand dead animals in the water.

This is a lot of pigs, i'm curious to the cause of death for so many swine.

I wonder why they were killed in such huge numbers

If there was a legit reason to kill them, then wouldnt burning them be a better alternative than dumping them?

Unbelievable

This may not be the first time...news can be unreliable at times..maybe the are doing what the diamond companies do and that's to dump some of their product to keep the price high.

I'm with you on that one, it's stated that it's illegal to send animals down river in China but it doesn't seem like it phased the farmer one bit. Never the less it's in the river that is used for it's main source of water.....

Pig flavored water..... I gag thinking about it.

Let's hope that they didn't come down with some wicked new virus.
Especially one that could be spread to humans.

I'm wondering the same thing, and if they did die of natural causes why didn't they burn them.

I'll keep an eye out if more details are released.

And how precisely do you suggest to go ahead with burning 20.000 pigs ?

Ignite them one by one or get a supertanker with fuel and soak the whole pile ?

Dig a long trench, get a LOT of banana leaves, a couple barrels of pineapple slices, couple barrels of honey glaze, etc., etc.


Seriously though, Swine Flu maybe?

There are ways. Im not the expert on how. But it should be common sense not to dump 20,000 pigs into the water. You do what you need to avoid that.

Maybe they could be dried and powdered and then sold off as a cure for Erectile Dysfunction??

I mean why not stranger things have been used!

Obviously a pig "flu" of some kind. Spreading to humans is the question of the hour (a few pig farmers and workers have died). What's the best thing to do with contaminating pigs? Throw them in the river and let the current take care of it! (why those "farmers" aren't arrested is the other question of the hour. To make it "my questions three", who would count the exact number of pigs? 3,323, give or take a piglet.)
