We previously mentioned that literally thousands of dead pigs were being scooped out of China's Huangpu river in Shanghai.
Well now at Anhui University’s old campus in Hefei, capital of Anhui province, five black swans have been found dead in their pond.
That's so sad!
When the news broke, a journalist went to investigate how the swans died.
When he got to the pond, he found that it was a disgusting mess with oily water and garbage!
Apparently people clean clothes, wash mops and do other things that deposit chemicals into the pond.
The swans are going to be taken into the university and studied so their cause of death can be known for sure!
Let's hope they figure it out so those rare and beautiful creatures are never harmed again.
