6th October 2017 - Radioactive wild boar spark concerns in Sweden 31 years after Chernobyl

Extracts:

One animal shot by hunters was found to have more than 10 times the safe level of radiation.  The high radiation levels - which come 31 years after the Chernobyl disaster sent a cloud of radioactive dust over Sweden — have left hunters afraid to kill and eat the animals.

“This is the highest level we’ve ever measured,” he told the Telegraph, after testing an animal in Tärnsjö, a village between the cities of Uppsala and Gävle, with a radiation level of 16,000 becquerel per kilogram (Bq/kg).
