Dead Pigs in the Shanghai River

        According to CNN, in China, “At least 2,800 dead pigs have been fished from a Shanghai river since Friday, but authorities insist that tap water in the city is still safe to drink.” OK, first of all, wasn’t it safe to drink BEFORE the pigs were in it. Note that China’s Shanghai River went through water pollution troubles, along with the Citarum River in Indonesia, the Ganges River in India, and the Yangtzu & Huangpu River in China. Also, the cause of the pigs’ death was not from water pollution, but an unknown disease  in a village south of Shanghai. The Shanghai Municipal Agricultural Commission is still finding the source of this crisis. What would you do if over a thousand dead animals were located near your local river? How can you prevent this from happening?
