 — Suffering bleeding lesions, hair loss

 

 

Diseased seals in Alaska tested for radiation, Reuters, Dec. 27, 2011:

 

SOURCE: North Slope Dept. of Wildlife

 

 

Scientists in Alaska are investigating whether local seals are being sickened by radiation from Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant. [...]

 

Biologists at first thought the seals were suffering from a virus, but they have so far been unable to identify one, and tests are now underway to find out if radiation is a factor. [...]

 

 

Specifics

 

 

  • Scores [multiples of twenty] of ring seals have washed up
  • On Alaska’s Arctic coastline
  • Since July

 

 

Symptoms

 

 

  • Bleeding lesions on the hind flippers
  • Irritated skin around the nose and eyes
  • Patchy hair loss on the animals’ fur coats

 

 

John Kelley, Professor Emeritus at the Institute of Marine Science at the University of Alaska Fairbanks

 

 

  • “We recently received samples of seal tissue from diseased animals captured near St Lawrence Island with a request to examine the material for radioactivity”
  • “There is concern expressed by some members of the local communities that there may be some relationship to the Fukushima nuclear reactor’s damage”
  • “[Test results would not be available for] several weeks”

Canadian authorities are finding extremely high levels of nuclear radiation in certain fish samples.

Some fish samples tested so far have had very high levels of radiation: in a sample collected in July, for example, had 1,000 becquerels per kilogram of cesium.

This is an absurd...
