News just in from Bavaria
A Bavarian village was flooded by liquid pig manure after a tank containing the fertilizer burst, German police said Wednesday. Sewage rose to 20 inches in the courtyards and streets of Elsa after gushing from the tank, which held some 240,000 litres of pig manure. "The village was swamped with green-brown liquid and it was pig manure -- the mother-of-all muck," said Rainer Prediger, a police spokesman in the nearby town of Coburg.
