Now Pigs...
OMG....:shocked:

Quote:Hong Kong television and newspapers were full of lurid accounts on Monday of pigs staggering around with blood pouring from their bodies in Gaoyao and neighboring Yunfu, both in Guangdong Province. The Apple Daily newspaper said that up to 80 percent of the pigs had died in the area, that peasants were engaged in panic selling of ailing animals at deep discounts and that pig carcasses were floating down a river.

there's actually quite a bit on this... lots of articles!
do a search on sick pigs.....
this can't be good folks!

here's another.....

Quote:Mystery disease kills pigs in Southern China
HONG KONG (Reuters) - A mysterious disease has killed thousands of pigs in China's southern Guangdong province and authorities have disinfected affected farms, markets and abattoirs, several Hong Kong newspapers reported on Monday.
The outbreak began around early April in Silao town, where the animals stopped eating, developed high fevers and started hemorrhaging under their skin.

The disease has since spread to nearby towns, they reported. Its cause is unknown.

Beijing-backed Ta Kung Pao quoted officials in nearby Yunfu city confirming that more than 300 pigs had died in Silao town.

Some of the carcasses were hurled into rivers and that may have been responsible for the spread of the disease to surrounding areas, other newspapers reported, with some estimating total losses at more than 3,000 animals.

Faced with heavy financial losses, some farmers have hastily sold sick pigs at reduced prices, the Apple Daily reported.

Although the cause of the disease is unknown, experts ruled out the possibility of people contracting the disease.

Was this from the gluten in the cat food deal.

It was fed to consumer market pigs and chickens.

I'm sending email to relatives not to eat chicken or pork, or no Chinese food restaurants.

Guess where their chickens come from... yup fresh from China.

Is the bee death topic on ConCen, I might as well find it and blame the contrail or

chemtrail or ufo trail on killing the bees.

Concerns Raised on China's Global Health Disclosures

Quote:State-controlled media in China have carried a few reports on the wheat gluten problem but almost nothing on the pig deaths.

A man answering the phones at the city government of Gaoyao, located 230 kilometers to the northwest of Hong Kong, confirmed late Monday afternoon that pigs were dying there. The man declined to give his name.

Quote:...Animal feed dealers in northeastern China said late last month that the two main destinations for feed mixed with melamine had been the Yangtze delta region near Shanghai and the Pearl River delta region near Hong Kong

Now it is the year of the pig (and it IS almost June), but in 2005 this is what was weirdly going on with pigs in that region of the world:

Really odd timing in the Year of the Pig.

Quote:The disease reportedly started killing pigs after Chinese New Year celebrations in February

(And its odd too, the band Death in June has a song "All Pigs Must Die" and the video includes a lot of photos of literal pigs.) Here is the track listing of a limited edition vinyl release of 2001:

Lyrics-all releases here: Much symbolism, and omens, no doubt, i.e. "Hail the White Grain"...and much, much more:
