The stuff of nightmares… or at least of a gleefully low-budget horror film. One would think so from the exciting headline ‘Radioactive boars’ on loose in Germany (pity about those quotation marks) which suggests packs of demented glow-in-the-dark beasts rampaging through the Teutonic forests, attacking woodcutters and orphans roaming lost in the woods. Alas, the boars feed on mushrooms, truffles and wild berries rather than human flesh.
I like that the article mentions the radioactivity found in boars being “10 times higher than normal”. How radioactive are they usually?
