During a search for still missing people, the crew saw an ostrich in the street. He is still alive after 8 months. But the owner of this ostrich signed an agreement with the Government of Japan to have him euthanized. Of course, with the “one-sided” tactics used by the Government of Japan’s officials, it is no wonder that the owner agreed. The Government of Japan denies the owners entry into the exclusion zone to care for their animals. Knowing that their animals are being denied food and water, most owners eventually capitulate to the Government’s tactics.
Is there any future for this ostrich? Does anyone even care that this ostrich has survived 8 months of hell? Here’s an idea. Maybe we can ask that great politician, Yuichiro Tamaki, that cares so much about the animals to help. Just joking. We all know that Yuichiro Tamaki is all about talking about helping the animals and not about actually following through with action. Talk is cheap. I guess that makes Yuichiro Tamaki as good as his words.
Searchers surprised by runaway ostrich in Fukushima
An ostrich, believed to have escaped from a nearby ostrich farm, appeared out of nowhere and crossed in front of a procession of police vehicles.
The officers had mounted an intensive search for people who remain unaccounted for around the Tomioka fishing port in Fukushima Prefecture.
The search effort was led by the prefectural police department and other government agencies.
The area is located in a no-entry zone within a 20-kilometer radius of the stricken power plant. Within the no-entry zone, many wrecked cars and a huge amount of rubble have yet to be removed.
About 130 riot police and officers from the Japan Coast Guard took part in the search.
According to the prefectural police department, 226 people remain unaccounted for in Fukushima Prefecture following the March 11 disaster.
