Glow-in-the-Dark German Hogs...
Does the glow make them easier to track at night? Who takes a Geiger counter on a hunting trip...


BERLIN It was a big shot. A big hog. And a big disappointment.
When Georg van Bebber hauled back his wild boar from Ebersberg forest near Munich after a day of hunting, he was exhilarated about his impressive prey.
But before he could take it home, a Geiger counter showed a problem: The boar's meat was radioactive to an extent considered potentially dangerous for consumption. It needed to be thrown out and burnt.

Well, this paragraph would lead one to some "above average" precautions. :rolleyes:


Almost a quarter century after the 1986 CHERNOBYL nuclear meltdown in Ukraine, its fallout is still a hot topic in some German regions, where thousands of boars shot by hunters still turn up with excessive levels of radioactivity. In fact, the numbers are higher than ever before.
