Radioactive rabbits Thu, Oct 29, 2009
Helicopters recently flew over parts of the Hanford nuclear reservation in Washington state to record the GPS coordinates of radioactive rabbit poop that could later be scooped up and properly disposed of.  Several animals and plants showed traces of nuclear contamination, but "roaming rabbits appear to account for the overwhelming bulk of the radioactive excrement."  You can say that again.  As a rabbit owner, I can attest to the fact that rabbits poop a lot.  And as a student of pop culture, I can only imagine rolling fields filled with gigantic radioactive rabbits standing on their hind legs and shooting laser beams from their angry, red eyeballs. #nature
