LIVES UNSEEN IN NUCLEAR GHOST TOWNS Starving. Scared. Waiting. Animals are trapped in Japanese cities inside a 20km radius (soon to expand) around Fukushima’s shattered nuclear power plant. Since a 9.0 earthquake and tsunami (3/11/11) crushed over 400 miles of northeastern Japan coast, the damaged plant continues to emit inivisible rays. Residents are gone under mandatory evacuation. But life is evident in these ghost towns. Some 4,000 cows, 31,000 pigs, 630,000 chickens, 100 horses — along with 5,800 registered companion dogs and an unknown number of cats — live unseen. They are without food, water, care or comfort.
