One Million Cockroaches Escape
By Bill Doyle
Wow. There are businesses you don’t want to live next to; you might not like the smell of having a feedlot next door or a farm, the late hours and drunk people might make living next to a bar problematic. But there is not a single business I would least like to live next to than the farm in Darfeng, China where one million cockroaches were set loose.
According to Stuff.co.nz,
According to the Modern Express newspaper, the roaches fled the facility in Dafeng, in the eastern province of Jiangsu, for surrounding cornfields earlier this month after an “unknown perpetrator” destroyed the plastic greenhouse where they were raised.
Why were there over a million cockroaches to begin with? The article went on to say that believers in traditional Chinese medicine use extracts from the roaches for various illnesses.
