170 dead pigs found in China river

At least 170 dead pigs have been retrieved from a river in China`s Qinghai province, authorities said Wednesday.



Beijing: At least 170 dead pigs have been retrieved from a river in China`s Qinghai province, authorities said Wednesday.

The pigs were found in the Xining section of Huangshui river, a tributary of the Yellow river, by locals last week, Xinhua reported.

Autopsy results have ruled out the possibility of zoonosis, an infectious disease. The pigs will undergo further tests by the provincial center of animal disease control and prevention.

Huangshui River is the major source of irrigation water for nearby regions.

In March 2013, thousands of dead pigs were retrieved from the Huangpu river in Shanghai.
