The Hoshi family inside Fukushima exclusion zone caring for animals 2011-2013 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWKDIh0umD0n
The Hoshi Family began to rescue animals left inside the Exclusion Zone Fukushima in April 2011 until January 2013. Hiroshi Hoshi and son Leo Hoshi were arrested on January 28th, 2013 and remain in custody of the Fukushima police until further notice. Recently they were finally granted bail after being denied many times. They are accused of alleged crimes related to their entry and rescues inside the No Go Zone, or Exclusion Zone of Fukushima Japan. They are volunteer animal rescuers who have fed, rescued and re-homed hundreds of animals trapped inside the Zone. They will return to Fukushima courts on 8th of May 2012.
*Letter From Hiroshi Hoshi http://fukushimaappeal.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/letter-from-hiroshi-hoshi.html
There were about 600,000 farm animals and 25,000 pets in the area. In May 2011 a disposition for slaughter of them was ordered by the Japanese government. Some farmers rejected it. 90% of farm animals and pets died of hunger. Right now there are about 2000 pets struggling to survive. The Japanese government announced that there are no more pets in the zone, however. Because local residents are restricted to return their home (three times a year) and because of pet loss some residents killed themselves and some have traumas.
