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.

Bring Out Your Dead
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
No... Swine "Float"...
These people need more environmentalists & PETA activists. I suggest we send them ours!
Might make a good swimming place for Muslim Jihadists.
Where do we send our contributions for air fare?
It must not be “the year of the pig”...
Maybe they are killing off pigs in an attempt to raise prices like FDR tried....
It’s bad enough that the carcasses landed in the river...but I’d like to know the cause of the pig die-off. Wonder if it is the next swine flu gearing up to hit us....
Headline NY Slimes, “Maxwell the Geico pig has gone missing”
NEW! BACON FLAVORED WATER! HEALTHY AND DELICIOUS!*
*=these claims have not be evaluated. The manufacturer is not responsible for consumers contracting swine flu, trichinosis, etc.
That thought occurred to me as well. That’s a pretty good-sized die-off, 3,000 pigs.
