Radioactive boars rising.

Oh. OK.

Discovery is reporting that the population of radioactive boars is increasing in Europe:

Radioactive wild boars are on the rise in Germany, where they have attacked and frightened residents, even snarling traffic when they gang up on roadways, according to Spiegel International Online and numerous other media reports over the past couple of weeks.

But the problem isn’t just radioactivity. Despite the contamination, wild boars are multiplying in record numbers.

“In the last couple of years, wild boar have rapidly multiplied,” a spokesman from the Environment Ministry told Spiegel Online. “Not only is there more corn being farmed, but warmer winters have also contributed to a boar boom.”
It’s already been 24 years since the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, but experts are predicting the problem of radioactive wild boars will plague Germany “for at least the next 50 years.”

The meat is unfit for human consumption. Radioactivity has become a selective advantage here.
