Now Dead Babies in the River

Reuters reports that a cache of 21 dead babies was found near a river in the city of Jining in Shandong Province. They were dead and aborted fetuses discarded by hospital personnel. Apparently they were not buried deep enough, and some washed into the river.

This story is not about agriculture and I don't usually post stories available elsewhere in English, but it's remarkably similar to the story about dead pigs posted here last week. The two stories are unrelated, but there is a disturbing parallel.

The guys who dumped the pigs had the sense to remove their ear tags so they couldn't be traced, but many of these babies still had tags identifying them, their mothers' names, and bed number. One was labeled "medical refuse."
