Fukushima Farmed Animals Get Help

Posted on by Ashley Fruno

The Japanese Cabinet officially announced that the prime minister has ordered the Fukushima governor to euthanize all the farmed animals in the 20 km “no-go” zone. As sad as it is, the animals—many who have been without adequate food since the earthquake and tsunami in March—will finally be granted a peaceful end to their suffering.

Shocking images from the affected areas show dead farmed animals and some who had been cannibalized by others.

Thank you to all who wrote to Japanese officials urging them to take action.
