So they haven't found any evidence to support an epidemic or a dumping. Obviously the pics committed suicide.

This would be exactly like the rays that "washed up" on the shores of the Gaza strip except for 2 things.

1: Pigs are not an endangered species
2: They weren't caught by fishermen

Huang has to push his pigs hard to jump from the platform, as most do not seem to enjoy the airborne experience, he said. But he added that he believes diving can help the pigs eat more food and grow faster.

Thats normal for 3rd world/Rural areas. Dead bodies of any kind, especially in large numbers, are abnormal in rivers.

"The statement says the water and environmental protection bureaus are ramping up monitoring of the river's water quality."

Judging by all the trash around those dead piggies, I don't think they monitor water quality.

The statement says the water and environmental protection bureaus are ramping up monitoring of the river's water quality.

With the 'normal' quality of the water in the river, the pigs might have been an improvement.

Only in China can 900+ pigs get dumped in a river and no one knows where they came from.

They probably got gassed accidentally (if indoors) and whomever had the farm wanted to dispose of them and because it's mainland China, it's every person for himself (which is strange in a supposedly communist society) so the person just dumped them in the river.
