Reindeer are still very radioactive 30 years after Chernobyl.
April 26 marks the 30-year anniversary of the worst civilian nuclear disaster in history. When a nuclear power plant at Chernobyl, in what is now Ukraine, exploded, it coated the earth with radioactive material — as far as the picturesque, snow-capped mountains of Scandinavia, where for generations, the indigenous Sami people lived in harmony with nature.
Chilling photos of Norway’s “radioactive reindeer.”
Stunning large photos. Take a look…
HWH Comment: The reindeer walkers are devastated.
How about the reindeer whom they walk to slaughter? The Sami people are still trying to eat them. Think their God is trying to tell them something that they’re ignoring out of their thirst for the blood? Find another way to build your economy.
Living in harmony with nature somehow in my mind doesn’t include slaughter.
Romanticizing slaughter is one of the reasons the world continues to engage in that horror.
