Last week we told you the gross tale of a river with nearly 3,000 dead pigs in it. Now that number has doubled.
The problem is in the Huangpu River in China and yes, it does supply at least one of the cities it runs through with 22% of its water.
But workers in the city continue to say the water is safe to drink and in their terms is "generally stable."
The finger is being pointed at a major hog center in Jiaxing, a city upstream.
Ear tags on the animals are being used in an attempt to track the source but nothing has been proven yet.
Officials in Jiaxing say the cold weather has caused more and more of the animals to die but can’t explain how they got into the river.
