Daring civilians spotted two contaminated dogs on a Fukushima live stream area, then slipped behind nuclear lines to rescue them!

The volunteers drove to the plant, found the dogs, and sped out of there to a nearby veterinary hospital, where the two dogs were decontaminated and treated for their radiation exposure.

According to the Hachiko crew (itself named after a beloved Japanese dog), these dogs were not only a tragic sight, but posed a threat to humans.

The dogs were taken to the Kanagawa Animal Emergency Hospital for decontamination and treatment.

Not only is this good for the dogs, but it prevents accidental contamination of the public if these dogs were to migrate back out of the 20km radiation zone.
