After finding 16,000 dead pigs in the water last week, the government pulled another 1,000 ducks from the Sichuan River today. Local representatives for the government said that the bodies were first reported Tuesday and then withdraw from woven sacks upstream. The ducks were reportedly disinfected and then buried. The news comes as residents begin to question the basic health of river water in China. As we have discussed in class, most rivers are completely dead in China,and to no suprise dead animals are now being disposed of in rivers as well.
