Just One Man Remains in Fukushima Radiation Zone – He’s Feeding All the Animals Left Behind

Naoto Matsumura is adamant: “Animals and people are equal.”

That’s why the 55-year-old rice farmer returned to the Fukushima exclusion zone after being forced to evacuate. Despite warnings about high levels of radiation, he wanted to check on his family’s farm dogs.

In the wake of the devastating March, 2011 earthquake and subsequent melt-down of the nuclear reactor in their hometown, most people left their pets behind, expecting to return in a few days.

When Matsumura defied government orders and returned to Tomioka, he discovered his neighbor’s dogs still tied up, starving and begging for help. Touched by the suffering, he decided to stay behind and care for all the area’s abandoned animals— pets, as well as, ducks, pigs, ostriches, cattle and a pony.

One pooch he found had been locked in a barn for an entire year surviving only on the remains of dead cattle. Matsumura named him Kiseki or “Miracle.”

Every day for four years he’s been exposed to high levels of radiation. In fact, a University of Tokyo doctor said after an examination, his body contained the highest amount of radiation of any person in Japan. But, he also told Matsumura that he wouldn’t feel any symptoms for some 30-40 years.

“So the animals and I are staying here,” he told a documentary filmmaker last year.

 

They welcome occasional visitors, like journalists and crews of international media— especially in March around the disaster’s anniversary. Supporters sometimes bring donated food and water for both him and his animals. He travels out of the zone, to speak about the hazards of nuclear energy, and to visit family.

Even in his beloved town ravaged by radiation, new life springs forth— a calf, some kittens — while the fifth generation farmer raises a new generation of animals born there.

A Ferguson resident who saw her bakery vandalized during the recent riots has received over $200,000 to repair her business. Natalie DuBose said she was “in tears” at the amount of support she has received during “this crazy difficult time.”

Following the advice of a friend, she decided to start an account for donations to help rebuild her business. Little would she know that she would manage to raise over $215,000 in less than a day, with over 6,500 people making donations from $10 to $1000.

“I'm overwhelmed by the amazing generosity I'm receiving. The love, attention, support, the many, many people stopping by to say hello, the offers of assistance, the letters, the anonymous donations, the lovely letters, flowers, telephone calls, media support, and the support of the people of Ferguson. Thank you for the wonderful comments; I can't wait to read them all. I am truly and humbly blessed,” she wrote on her GoFundMe donation page.

Messages of support have been pouring in as well, with one contributor, Pete Sequeira, saying: “Natalie, you a truly an inspiration to the millions of single parents raising young children through hard work and sacrifice. You deserve ALL the love and good wishes pouring in from all over the world! God Bless you and have a Happy Thanksgiving.”

DuBose, a single mother of two, has always loved baking. However, her shop was left in ruins after two nights of rioting following the acquittal of Darren Wilson – the officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown in August.

Her bakery, Natalie’s Cakes and More, is located on South Florissant Road, which saw a number of businesses targeted during the unrest. It could not have come at a worse time, with Thanksgiving just around the corner.

“I have invested everything into my business. I can’t go anywhere and I am not going to go anywhere. They destroyed a lot of the windows. They destroyed a lot of the materials I needed for upcoming Thanksgiving orders,” she said in an interview to St. Louis television station KTVI. At the moment, she is busy cleaning and trying to repair her business to make sure she can deliver orders on time.

It has not been an easy journey for Natalie to do what she loves doing most. She managed to raise the capital to open her bakery after selling cakes at flea markets, and finally managed to accomplish her dream of opening her store this summer. Business was slow at the start and only got worse after the fallout from the Michael Brown shooting in August.

After an earlier appearance on a local radio station, business had started to pick up – but then disaster struck again, as violence once again returned to Ferguson.

Due to the outpouring of generosity from her fellow Americans, Natalie now has much more money than she needs to repair her shop. For the moment, though, she is just trying to make sure she has plenty of satisfied customers who can enjoy her cakes while celebrating Thanksgiving.
