Jeremy Wade spent some time there.
Then there is this.
Found this but have not seen it.
According to the second video in this thread, animals around chernobyl are showing visible signs of radiation and examples are shown. The scientist doing the research suspects that the problems exhibited will make it difficult for the affected creatures to find mates, because they don't look quite right, so he suspects there is some breeding selection going on as a result of the radiation problems.

Their reproductive systems, usually quite sensitive to environmental changes, are obviously unaffected to any large degree either...as they're breeding and multiplying quite readily and apparently normally. I'd imagine they will not make old bones though, and will probably die of cancers and so on at much younger ages than would be normal for their species.
