Radioactive Boar on the Rise in Germany


“As Germany’s wild boar population has skyrocketed in recent years, so too has the number of animals contaminated by radioactivity left over from the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown. Government payments compensating hunters for lost income due to radioactive boar have quadrupled since 2007.”,1518,709345,00.html

I just had Springfield imagery at the thought of radioactive boar. Mr. Burns would probably eat that stuff!

Anyway, some of you might know inessita and her morning posts on groupthink about (mostly) European news and analysis. Finally, she got her own Tumblr so that we can properly follow her.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
