Fukushima: Radioactive boars create mutant hybrid species decade after nuclear disaster

A decade after the Fukushima disaster, wild boars have been mating with domestic pigs in the nuclear wasteland and creating a new mutant species, DNA researchers have determined, Daily Star, By Kirsty Car 2 JUL 2021

Radioactive wild boars have been breeding with Japan’s domestic pigs to create a new hybrid species, researchers say.

…. ..the area’s wild boars bred with domestic pigs that escaped from nearby properties after farmers had to flee, creating a new hybrid species.

A study has led by Donovan Anderson, a researcher at Fukushima University in Japan, analysed DNA samples from muscles of 243 wild boars, pigs and boar-pig hybrids, taken from local slaughterhouses.

The results proved that 31 wild boar, or 16% of the wild boar from the evacuated zone, were hybrids……… The team also claim that while the boar-pigs are radioactive, the study did not link radioactivity with the creation of the new hybrid species……..
