Naoto Matsumura is the only human brave enough to live in Fukushima’s 12.5-mile exclusion zone

image

He fled at first but returned to take care of the animals that were left behind

image

He returned for his own animals at first, but realized that so many more needed his help, too

image

Matsumura, who is 55 years old, knows that the radiation is harmful, but he “refuses to worry about it”

image


“They also told me that I wouldn’t get sick for 30 or 40 years. I’ll most likely be dead by then anyway, so I couldn’t care less”

image


Matsumura discovered that thousands of cows had died locked in barns

imageimage


He also freed many animals that had been left chained up by their owners

image


Many of them now rely on him for food

image

The government has forbidden him from staying, but that doesn’t stop him either

image


He started in 2011 and is still going strong 4 years later

image


He relies solely on donations from supporters to work with and feed the animals

image


His supporters are calling him the ‘guardian of Fukushima’s animals’

image


The man clearly has a sense of humor as well

This hero deserves way more notes.

There should be a way to donate to this guy

Actually I spent some time and I found a link to donate to him. Click here to be sent to a website where you can donate to his efforts

This guy is amazing, and reminds me of the spirits of Miyazaki’s films…it’s like he’s the guardian spirit of Fukushima’s abandoned animals

Don't be the product, buy the product!
