18 April 2013

Hundreds more pigs have been found dead in China — this time together with dozens of dogs. A total of 410 pigs and 122 dogs were discovered in homes and at farms earlier this week in a village in central Henan province, authorities said on Wednesday. The local propaganda office said the deaths were being investigated but that they suspected they had to do with nearby chemical factories. The factories have been ordered to suspend production and help police with a criminal investigation into the incident, according to a report on a Henan provincial news website. —THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
