This is water pollution

18/03/2013

More than 12,000 dead pigs have been found in Chinese rivers.

Nearly 9,000 dead pigs were fished out of the Huangpu river in Shanghai, and 3,600 others from rivers and lakes in Jiaxing, with the search continuing in both cities, ‘The South China Morning Post’ quoted government sources as saying.

Authorities have also found traces of a common pig virus in some of the animals floating in the Huangpu River this week.

I am not suggesting this excuses any water pollution elsewhere but it does put our problems in to perspective.
