6,000-7,000 Fukushima dogs and cats died from the tsunami or from being Left Behind when their owners were evacuated and not allowed to take their pets.  The report was from the Fukushima Prefecture and revealed by a Japanese Veterinarian for a “seminar”.   Interesting how the information never made it to the news agencies.  The Japanese Veterinarian was part of “animal rescue operations for small animals” for the Fukushima Left Behind pets.

“According to a report from Fukushima Prefecture, prior to the disaster, approximately 10,000 dogs and cats were living within the so-called “caution zone”. It is estimated that approximately 60 to 70% of these animals died either in the tsunami or else from subsequent starvation, weakness, etc.”

The photo is of an elderly dog. The owner had repeatedly requested the dog be rescued. When rescuers finally went to rescue the dog, they found that they were too late.
