doctor_sbaits0: "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.

It says something about your river when 900 rotting corpses don't look out of place.

Agent Smiths Laugh: All that bacon wasted! Truly a tragedy.

You think the Chinese will really let all those pigs go to waste?

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.

Maybe they just got sick of life?

Has anyone ruled out SOOEY-cide?

Coming soon to a McRib sandwich near you.

Relax. It's just the Swinee River.

Not an epidemic, they just breathed the air.

Dear God, no!!! Think of all that potential bacon, wasted!

God forbid I ever have to go to China. You can't drink the water, you can't breathe, you can't trust the milk.

jprogram: I guess those pigs cannot be cured... for ham.

Oh, they cured them alright

/wet aging is a great way to age meat

You never cross the blue line! Oh, not a cop thread....

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.

Somethings' definitely not Kosher in China.

Wasn't it that guy yesterday with millions of demons inside him? Probably where they all went.

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

Sooey-cide, to quote Granny Clampett.

900 dead pigs in a river?

Then it must be Tuesday

Fridays, it's dead chickens.

According to the photo, pigs are a concern, but cigarettes and used diapers are okay.
