Wild boars are reportedly thriving in the evacuated areas around the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant
now they’re tearing through nearby farmlands
under normal circumstances, this boar population would be kept under control by local hunters... ...But the problem is these wild boars have been contaminated with caesium-137... ...and now the hunters won’t go near them
Now reproducing with abandon in the exclusion zones, the wild boar population has increased 300 percent since the disaster, from around 3,000 to 13,000, and they’re spilling out into the nearby farms to tear up and trample the crops.
local authorities are running out of ideas for how to contain the rampaging force of radioactive boars
if 13,000 are killed, hunters have around 2,600,000 pounds (1,179,340 kg) of potentially dangerous flesh requiring disposal
The most logical solution once these mass graves are filled to the brim is incinerating the rest of the radioactive carcasses, but you can’t just burn contaminated flesh - you need a special facility that’s capable of filtering out the radioactive materials so they’re not redistributed across the land via smoke particles.

Why must you make so difficult ? Shoot them from helicopters, leave them where they lay and the maggots will take care of the rest. Use drones to heard them and ................oh nevermind, just live with it ...... geesh...
