Now this is a drinking problem
The curious thing is that when I first read this article yesterday, the number of dead, floating pigs was "over 8,000." The count was updated about an hour before this post.
Number of pigs in and near Shanghai goes to 11,955
The number of dead pigs retrieved from waters in and near China's financial hub of Shanghai has reached nearly 12,000.
The upstream city of Jiaxing - where small hog farms are prevalent - reported Friday night that it had recovered 3,601 dead pigs from its streams, according to state media.
In Shanghai, authorities have retrieved 8,354 swollen and rotting carcasses from Huangpu river, which provides the metropolis with drinking water.
