Thousands of Dead Pigs Found in Chinese River

The discovery of dead pigs found in the Shanghai water supply is shocking to many residents, but pig fatalities are nothing new in China.

Nearly 6,000 dead pigs floated down the Huangpu River last week as Chinese workers extracted them with pitchforks. While potential contamination incited alarm among Shanghai residents who drink the water, the recent display of dead animals seems to be business as usual. CNN reports that officials from Jiaxing City, where the pigs originated from, noted that nearly 70,000 of the animals have died since January due to weather and farming practices; in one recent case, Zhejiang Province handed out nearly 50 prison sentences for a scandal that involved the sale of infected swine meat. Chinese officials say that they expect to find more carcasses, but that the Shanghai water supply is safe, to which one internet user retorted, “Since apparently, the water has not been contaminated, big leaders, please go ahead and have the first drink.”
