TOKYO – When Etsumi Ogino saw a news photo of a pack of shelties wandering through an abandoned town near Japan's tsunami-damaged nuclear plant, she thought of her own 13-year-old canine Kein and jumped into action.[...]The group saved 20 dogs in all.
Another aspect of this is that it just wouldn't do to have some healthy dogs running around in that "hot" zone. So they'll have to be removed or killed, along with every other living thing that can't be said to be immune to radiation or dressed up in "Moon suits," or people will start to wonder about what the Empire of the Mind has been feeding them about nuclear power. Playing God, and rearranging the real world according to this huge lie, is a tough job even for the Masters of the Universe, especially when they'd much rather spend their money (and it is all theirs) on giant yachts.
Now, let me guess: dogs and other animals will start turning up dead or dying of "radiation" in the "hot" zone, now that someone has pointed out the discrepancy in their story. Either that, or they'll start shooting anyone who ventures into it (especially anyone with radiation-monitoring equipment), "for their own good," but actually to prevent us from knowing what the radiation levels and effects actually are.
