Burying pigs alive


Pigs about to be buried alive in Dongducheon, Gyeonggi, on Jan. 6 to prevent the further spread of the deadly foot-and-mouth disease (FMD). Health authorities say all drugs used to slaughter livestock ran out last month, so they were forced to bury the pigs. About 1 million cows and pigs were culled so far in this foot-and-mouth disease outbreak. [YONHAP]
