I can't believe that those pigs are so selfish as to hog the whole river.

Yes, the Chinese Communist Party's corruption and indifference to the well-being and health of the Chinese people has made China a toxic, filthy breeding ground for new diseases that will hurt everyone.

Mystery of the Shanghai Huangpu (plenty of poo) dead pigs actually was solved last week in interestingly prophetic manner by above commenter.

Appears that all of those very dead pigs @ all the same time appear to heve been victims of the waterborne strain of interspecies mutant H7N9 bird flu.

Good news for global human population is that this mutant interspecies strain is waterborne and dies out rapidly either through drying out in the air or via enzymes released into water by bacterial decay. Result is that the bulk of the rotting pig carcasses were already non infectious (at least for lethal bird flu) when they were spotted on the riverbanks.

Bad news for the Chinese is that this strain appears to be carried in mild non lethal (to the host) form by birds so the result is that it will remain in watercourses and mud in fowl frequented areas and will pop up @ random in areas where river water in particular is drunk without much treatment.
The Chinese Human H7N9 cases are in large part either poultry farmers or handlers OR alternatively have been drinking from water that the birds (such as ducks) have crapped in (which was the source of the immediate deaths of all those pigs).

The MADMAN is back again!

You are getting sicker by the days...

You need to see a headshrinker soon before you hurt yourself and others...

All mass killer in North American started that way. The symptoms are all there there but were disguised.

It is pretty obvious, the way things is for you, you will need to see the oncologist to see if the symptom has lead to something more serious!

So many negative posting and bad wishes in a single day and every day will finally takes its tool on you.

We are so THANKFUL we ain't you. Poor Poor Mirotard.
