Japanese Farmer Defying Danger Of Radiation To Save Animals

Much respect to Matsumura-san, resident of Tomioka, Fukushima Prefecture in Japan.

Until March 11th, 2011, he was a 50-year-old rice farmer in fifth generation, living, like his ancestors, in harmony with what mother nature gave him, always making sure she can replenish what he took from her.

When Fukushima nuclear power plant exploded as a consequence of Tohoku earthquake and a subsequent tsunami, the radiation levels in the area reached 17 times its normal amount, and it became obvious that living in the area of Tomioka was too dangerous. The residents were ordered to abandon Tohoku.

In May, 2011, the Japanese government ordered to kill all livestock due to lack of care and food.
Naoto Matsumura did not agree with this.
He returned to live in the deserted village of Tomioka to save those abandoned animals who could still be helped.
