China Dead Pigs
Workers collect dead pigs to deliver to a bio-safety disposal facility in Zhulin village of Xinfeng township in Jiaxing in east China's Zhejiang province Wednesday, March 13, 2013. The number of dead pigs found floating in a river flowing into Shanghai has reached nearly 6,000. The Shanghai municipal government said in an online announcement that 5,916 swine carcasses have been retrieved from Huangpu River, but added that municipal water remains safe. The surge in the dumping of dead pigs — believed to be from pig farms in the upstream Jiaxing area in the neighboring Zhejiang province — has followed police campaigns to curb the illicit trade of pork products harvested from diseased pigs.
