After burying 9.7 million animals alive this winter, South Korea could be facing a seriously karmic moment.
The mass graves holding the corpses of 9.7 million pigs, chickens, and cow may begin leaking the decomposition fluids of the dead animals into the country’s drinking water. Contaminated drinking water could spark a very serious clean water shortage sending the country into crisis.
The Korean government buried 9.7 million animals alive this past winter in an effort to stem the spread of foot-and-mouth disease. The killings required 4,000 mass graves to be dug and have already cost the Korean government $2.8 million. Experts fear that a water contamination would cost the government even more and require many in the nation to purchase bottled water exclusively.
One more reason not to bury 9.7 millions animals alive I guess. I can’t believe no one thought about this before they started.
