The citizens of Shaghai were shock to find that the pig carcasses floating in the Huangpu river, weren't just 900 water logged pig corpses but actually of the 900 bodies there were found traces of horse DNA. Minister of Health Chen Zhu made the following statement "we have no idea how horse meat got in amongst the 900 pig carcasses, I feel that the people who have allowed horse meat to be amongst the rotting and saturated dead bodies should be disgusted with themselves."
Many of the Locals in Shanghai have been surprised by the whole event. Shanghai resident Li Whu was outrage by the whole affair, "Horse meat amongst the pig remains! This will not stand! I tell you next time a mass group of dead animals come floating through here I will be looking at it with some suspicion I don't mind telling you." Many Chinese citizens have found that a mass of pig bodies inexplicably floating through a river doesn't quite have the same allure knowing that it could contain horse meat.
