The Radioactive Man Who Returned To Fukushima To Feed The Animals That Everyone Else Left Behind

The untold human suffering and property damage left in the wake of the Fukushima disaster in Japan has been well-documented. Still, there’s another population that suffered greatly that few have discussed – the animals left behind in the radioactive exclusion zone. One man, however, hasn’t forgotten – 55-year-old Naoto Matsumura, a former construction worker who lives in the zone and free willingly works as a caretaker for the abandoned animals.

He is known as the ‘guardian of Fukushima’s animals’ because of the work he does to feed the animals left behind by people in their rush to evacuate the government’s 12.5-mile exclusion zone. He is aware of the radiation he is subject to daily, but says that he “refuses to worry about it.” His living in the area is also against the law. He does take steps, however, by only eating food imported into the Fukushima exclusion zone.

See more about his work and what he has seen in the exclusion zone below!

More info: Facebook (h/t: vice, bbc, aplus)

Naoto Matsumura is the only human brave enough to live in Fukushima’s 12.5-mile exclusion zone

He fled at first but returned to take care of the animals that were left behind

He returned for his own animals at first, but realized that so many more needed his help, too

Matsumura, who is 55 years old, knows that the radiation is harmful, but he “refuses to worry about it”

“They also told me that I wouldn’t get sick for 30 or 40 years. I’ll most likely be dead by then anyway, so I couldn’t care less”

Matsumura discovered that thousands of cows had died locked in barns

He also freed many animals that had been left chained up by their owners

Many of them now rely on him for food

The government has forbidden him from staying, but that doesn’t stop him either

He started in 2011 and is still going strong 4 years later

He relies solely on donations from supporters to work with and feed the animals

His supporters are calling him the ‘guardian of Fukushima’s animals’

The man clearly has a sense of humor as well

He is amazing. Maybe a vet should neuter the animals to prevent him from being overwhelmed and to let this population fade away in time.

I wish he could see this he need to take Iodine Lugol Solution and give 1 to 2 drop to the animal everyday or every other day it will stop most of the radiation and it damage. He can take at least 5 drops per day.

Wonderful man. Think of those animals that died locked or chained up. Well, if he has 40 years, yes could be dead by then.
