Nuclear Rabbit: Earless Bunny Sparks New Fukushima Daiichi Fear
Earless 'Nuclear Rabbit' Born Near Fukushima Daiichi
Video footage of a mutant rabbit with no ears is sparking fresh fears about the radiation leaking from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The rabbit appears to be an albino, and it has no ears. "Nuclear rabbit" was filmed by a YouTube user called yuunosato.
The "nuclear rabbit" was born outside the exclusion zone surrounding the stricken Fukushima Daiichi plant. According to the video, this was the first abnormal rabbit born at this particular pen. The bunnies eat the wild grass that grows on the premises.
Real Nuclear Bunny? Real Nuclear Fears
This mutant rabbit may or may not be real (it could have been born earlier than stated, or its ears may have been removed), but it is raising new questions regarding the Japanese government's honesty about the extent of the danger posed by Fukushima Daiichi. It doesn't help when a government official refers to a volunteer cleanup group as "the suicide corps".
