Rabbit Born Without Ears in Fukushima?

Rabbit Born Without Ears in Fukushima?



A YouTube user claiming to be from Fukushima uploaded this video clip on May 21st. It shows a baby rabbit that was supposedly born without ears:

The YouTube user’s location is listed as the Tsushima area of Namie town, which happens to lie at the northwest edge of the original 30 kilometer exclusion zone set up around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. According to data released by the Japanese and U.S. governments, it was one of the places that suffered from considerable radioactive. Based on that data, the Japanese government expanded the evacuation zone in April, telling all residents of Namie to leave the area.

The anonymous uploader claims that there is “cover-up” [隠蔽工作] taking place. Apparently this rabbit is proof that the government has been lying about the health risk from the radiation leak. He/She claims that rabbits have a faster life cycle than humans, so they are an indication of what may eventually happen to human babies in Japan.

The video has gone viral, getting over 375,000 views in just a few days.

While the video has received a lot of attention and support from conspiracy theorists, there are also several comments on YouTube that question the authentically of the video. Critics point out that:

    * There is no evidence that this video was actually filmed in Fukushima.
    * There is no evidence that this video was filmed after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident.
    * Some of the Japanese phrases used in the video description sound unnatural. Was this video even uploaded by somebody in Japan?
    * This looks awfully clean to be a birth defect caused by radiation.

Earless rabbit no nuclear mutant

Experts say it is unlikely a rabbit born without ears near Japan's damaged Fukushima nuclear facility was mutated by radiation.

The white rabbit has been seen on a YouTube clip is reportedly discovered last month sparking concerns of mutations caused by radiation.

However experts say that the mutation is unlikely to be the result of radiation which reached elevated levels following the tsunami in March.

AOL Weird News cites an email from a professor emeritus at Colorado State University's Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences.

F Ward Whicker writes that mutations can be caused by other factors such as exposure to chemicals.

"To say this is the result of contamination from the Fukushima accident is a stretch."

This is not the first instance of an earless rabbit. In 2008 a British bunny named Van Gogh made headlines.

Memang belum tentu kelinci lahir tanpa telinga akibat mutasi.
Di Indonesia sendiri kan ada beberapa kasus hewan terlahir ganjil bukan karena mutasi.

Kalau tidak punya telinga, di tempel saja seperti gambar ini  [biggrin]
