I've always been a bit disappointed that there was no Godzilla-level mutation arising from Chernobyl. All of their re-wilded creatures seem to be of the cuddly variety. No stories of mutant nuclear bears or wolverines that I've heard.

Gone from that to reading about boars in Tuscany feasting on 20K worth of Columbian Marching Powder. Unfortunately there was no information on how the pigs faired.

Thanks JB.

I must check to see if Russell Braddon's 'The Year of the Angry Rabbit' is still in print. If not, it should be. Turns out it was a prescient parable for our current pandemic times. And yes, I still have my copy.

Interesting that no-one has brought up the radioactive zombie drop bears in Maralinga ...
