The plight of the abandoned animals of Fukushima

After the disaster of the Tohoku earthquake/tsunami on March 11, 2011, many animals were abandoned or separated from their owners. Following the humanitarian aid, workers have been busy caring for the lost animals of the region. However, in the evacuated area around the crippled Fukushima power station, animals abandoned in the evacuation have starved and turned to cannibalism and suffered. Human rescuers risk arrest.

Many humans have not forgotten the animals and continue to pressure the authorities to rescue as many as are still alive. You can find out more on the SALA site. Contains disturbing images.
