The Guardian of Fukushima’s Abandoned Animals


According to BBC News, a man by the name of Naoto Matsumura is the last person living in Tomioka, Japan.  The area was devastated after the disasters at the Fukushima power plant, causing almost all of it’s residents to flee.


People left in such a rush, than many doors were left open, and many animals were left abandoned.  Matsumura has taken it upon himself to be the personal guardian of the animals still living in the area.


He takes car of all of the abandoned animals, and lives by candle light.  He’s become known as the Guardian of Fukushima’s Animals.


He does his best to ensure that he gets as much food as possible for himself and the animals from outside the disaster zone. However, because he’s decided to stay behind to help, he’s most likely the world most radioactive man as well.
