Flood of dead pigs, trickle of answers in China

FILE - In this Thursday, March 14, 2013 file photo, a man rests while his co-worker pulls up the body of a dead pig picked up in a river into a vehicle in Jiaxing city in eastern China's Zhejiang province. In the nearly two weeks since thousands of pig carcasses started littering a river running through Shanghai, its residents have been told not to worry. What they haven't been given are convincing explanations behind the deaths and the dumping. The lack of clarity about the nearly 14,000 dead animals in a river system that supplies drinking water to the Chinese financial center has spawned both theories and dark humor: Residents joke that they can turn on their faucets and get pork broth.
