prague - The Czechs are facing this winter with a notable problem with wild boar meat, a delicacy in the country. Half of the pigs in the southwest of the country is inedible because the animals are radioactive.
A cold and wet winter forces the pigs to eating 'false truffles; a mushroom that grows under the ground around the Sumava mountains, a border with Germany and Austria.
The mushroom where the pigs are doing credit, can absorb large amounts of Cesium 137. The radioactive dust fell thirty years ago as a blanket down in the area after the nuclear power plant disaster at Chernobyl.
