"Thousands Of Dead Pigs Surfacing in Shanghai’s Rivers"

"BEIJING — The dead pigs keep bobbing up in Shanghai’s rivers.

When hundreds of porcine bodies started surfacing this weekend in rivers upstream from the city, it prompted only mild shock, showing perhaps how routine safety scares about food and water have become in China.

But worries turned to panic late Tuesday, when authorities revealed that the number of pigs pulled out of waterways had climbed in the course of three days to an astonishing 5,916."
