SHANGHAI — Desperate to avoid a public health crisis, the Shanghai municipal government has started encouraging its citizens to eat healthier, unveiling a new citywide awareness campaign entitled, “Go Vegan If You Want To Live™.”
Posters and billboards have gone up around the city depicting Shanghainese eschewing disease-ridden meat, fish and fowl, opting instead for fresh fruits and vegetables.

SHANGHAI — To combat the rising number of dead pigs floating in the Huangpu River, the Shanghai municipal government has approved plans to release 200 endangered Chinese alligators into the waterway upstream to devour the pig carcasses before they reach the city.
“This is a big win for everyone,” said Shanghai deputy mayor Zhang Yueran. “Not only will the alligators eliminate the dead pig problem, we are also restoring them to their natural habitat.”
