Default Radioactive pigs - a potential monster movie?

Radioactive wild boars roaming towns deserted after the Fukushima nuclear disaster are rounded up and killed amid fears they will attack

Hundreds of the boars are roaming the empty streets of exclusion zone towns
They forage for food in the overgrown Japanese backyards
'It is not clear which is the master of the town, people or wild boars,' mayor says
At the end of March, Japan is set to lift evacuation orders for parts of Namie
It is located just 2.5 miles from the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant

Radioactive boars are roaming Czech mountains after eating mushrooms contaminated by the Chernobyl disaster
The animals have been feeding on false truffles, an underground mushroom
The mushrooms were contaminated by radioactive isotope Caesium 137
Of the 614 wild boars inspected , almost half were found to be radioactive

Wild boar meat is a popular locally delicacy in the Czech Republic
Chance favors the prepared mind.

Why worry then? It seems not to harm the pigs. Go ahead and eat them.

And I suppose after eating one the filthy swine emit a mushroom cloud .
