Atomic Fallout Wildlife

This morning I watched a really cool documentary on HD Theater called "Chernobyl: Life in the Dead Zone."  I would have never thought there was still a great deal of wildlife thriving in the aftermath of the nuclear power plant explosion.

Someone seems to have posted the video on YouTube broken into several parts, so I thought I would post the first part of the video here for you to check out if you can't watch it on television.  Of course there are probably torrents of the video out there too.

The cats are so damn cute in this movie.  All the animals are really interesting to watch.  They decide to follow a few different animals, so you get to see how each lives out their life.  At times different animals they are following cross paths too.

Only complaint I have is they really don't show any of the animals killing other animals.  That surprised me.  It just seems odd that they show a lot of footage about an animal, but skip over the most dramatic stuff.  Still, the documentary held my interest even when I had to wait for the commercial breaks.

  1. Awesome video!

    I loved the cats. The had to travel to several different places, but finally found a home for the winter. Then the mother cat found a more permanent home too.

    Thanks Johnny!
