Fukushima to cull dying livestock in 20-km radius of nuclear plant
FUKUSHIMA

Six Fukushima prefectural government workers dressed in protective outfits went into the no-entry zone within a 20-kilometer radius of the crisis-hit nuclear power plant in the northeastern Japanese prefecture Monday to begin work to cull starving livestock.

While there is no legal stipulation involving slaughtering livestock in the area which has been restricted because of the nuclear accident, the prefectural government decided to kill the animals for public health reasons, local officials said.

the strontium or whatever would then be deposited in their bones. My husband told me that's why they stopped above-ground testing, because kids were being affected via contaminated milk.

I think it's best to be safe rather than sorry.
