Everyone has seen the photos of the suffering Fukushima cattle. Many reasons were given why they were allowed to suffer. But, now there is an explanation why they were allowed to suffer. The statement below is from a Japanese Veterinarian from Medical Care Division Head, Production Department, Fukushima Prefecture Dairy Farming Association. It didn’t state what Japanese Veterinary Association he belongs to.
“In the beginning, slaughtering the animals and disposing of the carcasses was considered, but there was nowhere suitable either as a working environment or as a disposal site for the carcasses as industrial waste, so most of the animals died of starvation.”

The Fukushima chained dogs that are fed, at most, weekly. There has been stories written by volunteer feeders that have found dogs that have wrapped themselves up with the chain that ties them to their post. They have run in circles around a post and were not able to untangle themselves resulting in the dog NOT being able to reach the food or water bowl UNTIL someone came to leave food and water for them again. This is not only Cruel but it is DANGEROUS to leave any animal unattended for that length of time. But, nothing is said and the dogs have not been removed.
The Government of Japan remains silent about the Fukushima Left Behind Pets. However, the new Japanese Prime Minister and his wife have been out to see the Fukushima cattle. The cattle that are “Fukushima radiation research” animals and are managed by the Japan Veterinary Medical Association.
This is an actual photo of how 1 dog that was being fed and given water was found.

The study that was done used pregnant cattle to see the effects on both the mother and developing baby while the mother grazed in low level radioactive pastures. The study recorded the cesium accumulation in the mother and in the developing baby, miscarriages, and after being born. * I bet that the researchers are just waiting for the babies to be of age to be bred so that they can do more “breeding” studies on them.
The photo is an example of cattle grazing in a contaminated pasture.
