This shocking video has emerged depicting workers heaving dead pigs out of the Huangpu river. Over 2000 pigs have been found dead floating in the water and the number is rising.
No-one is sure why these pigs are in the river or where they have come from, but the main concern is for human health. It is thought that it might be due to new laws on pork trading but this has not been confirmed.
This river is the primary source of water for the city of Shanghai. This could turn into a major environmental and health concern as the dead animals could be carrying diseases.
Fox news estimates the number to reach over 6000 in total and the investigation continues.
