Pet rescuers in nuclear zone

“Pet rescuers brave Fukushima danger zone” reads the headline of this heart rending story posted on CNN.com today. Many pets and farm animals were abandoned by their owners evacuating on short notice from the nuclear danger zone surrounding the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor complex.

Many of the owners thought they might be able to return after a few days, but the nuclear emergency has continued for more than a month now, with the exclusion area being too radioactive for homeowners to return. Even so, some heroic rescue teams are making short forays into the danger zone to retrieve or assist abandoned animals.
