    Shanghai said it was testing water samples from the river on an hourly basis and so far all indicators were “normal”. "NORMAL??" I do not think so! Just sound so gross! Poor pigs! Poor people using that nasty water!

    Yes, very eco-china. No wonder their fishing boats leave their territorial waters.

    @elbudamexicana It really depends on what your idea of normal is. The chinese understanding of that is probably a lot lower than what other nations would expect.

    The bigger concern is what was the cause of the death of 1000 pigs in the first place?

    If's foot and mouth disease or worse swine flu they need to locate the exact location and quarantine the area before it really does becomes an epidemic.

    Yes China, the cutting edge of Asia, the great future of us all, the rising star.... wait... Yellow dust, tiny poison particles, 1,000 floating dead pigs next to a major city. Hmmmm. Maybe they should start spending some of that money they are wasting trying to bully every other nation in Asia with their territorial claims and do some work at home to sort out the hideous mess that defines much of that still quite backwards country.

    China may be a mess, but it is still better than all the dead human bodies found in a river in Syria.

    Must have been a pretty horrid sight.

    A lot of the same can be said about this nation as well. And as for 'cleaning up one's own mess', how about Tokyo yesterday, eh? A lot of people were blaming it on PM2.5, then yellow sand, than they realized it was from Tokyo itself, drudged up by the winds.

    Over 1,000 dead pigs found floating in Shanghai river

    Maybe 1 chinese farmer tried to figure out if Archimedes' principle can also be proved on pigs...

    residents expressed fears over possible drinking water contamination

    Seriously? They needed to have 1000 dead pigs floating in river to have "fear" about drinking water contamination? It is China guys! You should even fear bottled water.

    Poor desperate ignorant pig farmers now living in fear of getting seized by central committee to expiate guilt by donating organs? Or will their connections trap surrogates/scapegoats?

    One dead pig floating down the river is a tragedy. 1,000 is a statistic.

    People in Shanghai never stop complaining about Beijing, and with sandstorms sweeping into the capital, the people in this country’s Second City have been growing quite smug about their marginally healthier air.

    Well, now… Shanghai isn’t exactly environmentally pristine. This weekend, more than 900 dead pigs were found added to the aquatic ecosystem in the Songjiang section of Huangpu River. It could, of course, be seen as an improvement on the lifeless fish floating on the surface — or** this**, or this — except for the stench: people living close to that section of the waterway have complained, becuase dead pigs apparently smell.

    If you click on the this/this links you will see how bad water quality in China can get ---> quite shocking when many in China consider this river with pigs in it quite good. =most water in China is horribly contaminated and something to think about when you buy Chinese food.
