Fukushima officials started on Thursday to cull animals within the 20-km danger zone for public health reasons. The operations focused on the Minamisomas Odaka district, home to 887 cows, 80 horses, 6,200 pigs and 260,000 chickens as of October 2010.
The district was damaged badly by the tsunami triggered by the magnitude 9 earthquake on March 11. Officials said they will kill only the animals near death, but will still try to get the owners permission, if possible.

The evacuation zone remains officially closed to rescue groups. Animals within the 20 kilometer radius are clearly suffering and their guardians are asking for help to save their beloved pets. The video below, which was released yesterday by Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue & Support (JEARS), illustrates the critical need for large-scale rescue and aid for the animals left to perish in the evacuation zone. There is not a lot of time left.
The tears since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami have been shared tears; every rescue and there have been many have been shared victories. More of each are sure to follow. It is a collective hope of animal lovers worldwide that the upcoming days and government decisions will usher in bold and compassionate animal aid on the mass scale thats urgently needed.

Please sign this petition if you believe as I do, that a desperate situation has only been made more desperate for decisions made by the Japanese government. Americans SHOULD HAVE been allowed to evacuate with their pets. This is a totally unacceptable decision, along with wholesale euthanasia, as a solution to this massive, cruel problem. This is heart-breaking Animal cruelty & Abuse. THERE IS NOT A WHOLE LOT OF TIME LEFT TO INTERVENE. Daily we read the news of dying, suffering, starving animals. WHO will help these animals?
Take this battle to the cash register. Try NOT to buy something made in Japan. Every purchase is an act of consent, perhaps this would be understood. Is there no one to intervene? Is EUTHANASIA the only answer?
Many petition signatures have been received from around the world expressing outrage over Animal Cruelty & Abuse, which is the important issue here.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking part in the conversation. I firmly believe that laws should be strengthened, and enforced to include a Felony charge, for crimes against animals.
Hopefully, those responsible for committing this time of heinous atrocity will be charged and jailed. The petition, along with its signatures was sent to all listed on the target, in addition to government officials, local newspapers and TV stations.
All of these defenseless animals who have suffered at the hands of their caretakers, are gone, but not forgotten. May they rest in peace.
And may we carry on the good fight in their name.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
