The Radiation Researchers first wanted to use Wild Monkeys located in the areas of Fukushima that were contaminated by the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant disaster. The initial report indicated that the Researchers would measure the levels of contamination via a collar attached to a wild monkey that had been captured for this purpose. The plan was to have the collar fall off and then retrieved so that the accumulated data could be read. However, not just content to do this with monkeys, the Researchers now want to do the same with wild boar. According to the article, the Researchers are now talking about “measuring the internal contamination levels” of the animals that are used to measure the environmental contamination. That would mean, that instead of having the GPS collar fall off and the animal go on its way, the GPS collar can now be used to track and capture or kill the animal so that the internal contamination level of the animal be measured. Since only female monkeys were to be used for this study, that would also mean that if this female monkey has a baby, that baby would also be part of the internal measurement study.
ALL the STUDIES that the Radiation Researchers are conducting also seem to include breeding the radioactively contaminated animals so that THEIR OFFSPRING to be examined. This is a Recurring theme. NO ANIMAL BREED is SAFE from being used. Humans, willing or unwilling, will also be incorporated into a Research Study. There is no limit to what Radiation Researchers will consider for a Radiation Research Study.

Measurement of radioactive material leaking from the nuclear power plant Fukushima Daiichi is painstaking work too, different people leading to the young mother from scientists and volunteers manufacturer cooperating with the work. Now, wild monkeys, some researchers have further hopes to boar in order to investigate the pollution situation.
Since the arrival of humans to measure the contamination of woodland difficult, in Fukushima, at a distance of about 70 kilometers from the nuclear power plant, a team of researchers is planning to be mounted color measurement of radioactivity in wild monkeys .
Responsible for the research team, said of the radiation situation of the forest from the air have been observed, on the ground that wild animals come and go and the data is missing.
If there is a possibility that the release in the monkey forest with a device, activity or influence in any animal in the long term, the radioactivity in the forest or how to diffuse further become apparent.
In addition, to investigate the plants and animals that eat the prey that has been contaminated with radioactivity, the status of internal exposure has not been investigated so far most of you may become apparent.
The collar that is attached to the monkey, a global positioning system device (GPS), monkey measuring how far from the surface of the small measuring device is incorporated radioactivity.
Researcher Ji – system, is planning to conduct a survey of the first in the mountains of the west side of Minamisoma, Fukushima Prefecture, about 25 kilometers away from the nuclear power plant. Here is notorious for a herd of wild monkeys dozens of species. After over two months, the monkeys were followed, but I plan to collect the data captured.
The team plans to conduct a pre-survey in October, to carry out the plan in February at the earliest. The responsible person has seen at least 5-10 years to continue the investigation, in order to assess the full impact half-life of cesium-137 for 30 years, I hope that continues for a prolonged period.
The first use of the monkey’s head 2-3. After that, I plan to increase the population. Then, that I want to use the boar.
