Another report this week is closer to the subject matter of this blog. On the afternoon of February 21 in Shanghai, a truck carrying a load of over 100 pigs suddenly caught on fire. The fire quickly spread to the cab, but the driver escaped. The pigs, of course, could not escape and observers reported their loud squealing.
Firefighters arrived quickly and put out the fire. In cleaning up the debris it was determined that 10 of the pigs died of burns or smoke inhalation.
