Radioactive Rabbits and Other Questionable Fallout

Abby Zimet

Shades of Monty Python: After trapping a radioactive rabbit at a
Cold-War-era nuclear reactor under demolition, Washington state health
officials are now hunting for
contaminated rabbit droppings on the site. Though they've tried to keep
away animals using fox urine around the site, workers have in the past
encountered other radioactive bunnies along with wasps, mice, flies and
their droppings, as well as worker leftovers like apple cores, which all sounds sorta like it should be funny, but really isn't.

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
