March 16 (Bloomberg) -- Authorities in Shanghai, China’s financial hub, pulled a further 1,420 dead pigs today and yesterday from the Huangpu river, bringing the total number of carcasses to close to 9,000.

The municipal government said two-thirds are piglets, according to statements on its official microblog. Water quality in the city is tested as normal, the government said.

Zhao Shumei, vice mayor of Jiaxing, where the pigs are reportedly from, said the city retrieved 3,601 dead pigs from fields and rivers last week and it is inconclusive that all the pigs were from Jiaxing, according to a report on the People’s Daily’s website people.com.cn.
