Radioactive wild boars have taken over two Japanese towns

Share

Towns set to reopen six years after the Fukushima nuclear crisis hire hunters to kill wild boars seen roaming vacant neighborhoods, having moved in after residents fled.

The result is that some residents who fled the area in March 2011 are now facing a nearly impossible choice - return to their homes near Fukushima or remain in their new homes, but with their housing subsidies withdrawn and compensation payments withdrawn a year later.

Now they scour the empty streets and overgrown backyards of the Namie town for food, an unexpected nuisance for those returning home six years after the meltdown.

Officials are capturing and killing hundreds of wild boars which are known for attacking humans.

During the best Bush years, when official unemployment fell to close to 4 percent, the alternative rate remained above 8 percent. Business have stepped up their purchase of industrial equipment, steel and others metals, and computers.

Now they've got another good reason to fear returning, something straight out of a horror movie, or worse: wild radioactive boars.

He warned that if humans didn't re-take control, things could get "even wilder and uninhabitable".

But three weeks before the evacuation order is to be lifted here in Tomioka, the average radiation level is still well above Japan's goal.

In nearby Tomioka, a team of 14 have been tasked with ridding the area with boars using their air rifles. "They found a place that was comfortable".

Rakowski further notes, "We have been taking additional steps to reinforce the connection at time of manufacture on phones built since January".

However, more than half of Namie's 21,500 residents have opted not to go back with concerns remaining about radiation and the plant's safety, according to a government survey. "There was plenty of food and no one to come after them".

But at town meetings earlier this year to prepare for the homecoming, residents had voiced worries about the animals. But the resulting cleanup operation looked to be a formidable task, expected to take decades.

Last month, a remote-controlled cleaning robot sent into a damaged reactor at the nuclear plant had to be removed before it completed its work because of camera problems most likely caused by high radiation levels.
