More than 3,000 dead pigs were dumped in the upper reaches of the Huangpu River, a source of Shanghai’s drinking water, authorities said.

Dead pigs removed from the Hengliaojing Creek in Shanghai’s district of Songjiang. The creek flows into the upper reach of the Huangpu River, a source of the city’s drinking water. 

“The number is expected to rise as there are still six barges that have not returned from collecting carcasses. We have to act quickly to remove them all for fear of causing water pollution,” the director of Shanghai Songjiang District Environmental Protection Bureau, told the Global Times.

The authorities don’t yet know what killed the pigs. Tests for common pig-borne diseases including swine fever, foot and mouth, hog cholera and epidemic diarrhea have thus far proved negative, said a report.
