Dead pigs on the back of a truck
According to the report, a taxi driver named Mr. Chen has a secret identity as a dead pig trader. He allegedly got phone calls from a friend who is an insurance adjuster who tipped him off on where to find dead pigs to buy. The insurance worker reportedly got a 5 percent commission.
Individual arrested in dead-pig-trading sting spills the beans.
Traders got info from insurance adjusters on where to buy dead pigs.
This is not new.
Three years earlier, a similar case was exposed in Hunan Province where the director of a veterinary station informed traders where they could buy dead pigs.
In 2013, Jiangxi Province allocated 67 million yuan to subsidize disposal of dead pigs to address this problem.
Officials and regulators place their loyalty to friends, relatives, and business partners above their responsibility to their organization or their responsibility to protect public health.
