Study shows wildlife thriving in abandoned Chernobyl nuclear zone

Animals in the Chernobyl exclusion zone have not been wiped out by the nuclear fallout contaminating the land, but are actually thriving in the absence of humans, according to a new ecological study

A series of explosions at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in 1984 set off a catastrophic chain of events that are still being felt today. The power plant disaster remains one of the worst nuclear accidents on record, with the destruction of the facility's reactor 4 on April 26 exposing large parts of the Ukraine and Belarus to harmful radiation.

No surprise. Humans live in the exclusion zone too, illegally, and are doing just fine.

It say's in the article that "none of the animals were examined" I'd wager if they were, they would show levels of radiation poisoning and cancer.
