As a result of the accident that took place at the Fukushima-1 NPP in 2011, the nearby territories were infected and the population was hastily evacuated from the dangerous area. People were forced to drop everything here, including livestock and pets. Left without food, animals were doomed to starvation. But one Japanese, 55-year-old Naoto Matsumura (Naoto Matsumura), returned to the exclusion zone to feed the abandoned animals. He realizes that every day he receives a huge dose of radiation, but this does not bother him much. With the help of volunteers who send money, he provides food for dogs, cats, cows and many other animals remaining in the infected area. Naoto Matsumura is the only person who dared to live in the Fukushima restricted area.
Having left during the evacuation, then he returned to take care of the animals that were left.
He returned to help his pets, but he realized how many more are still in need of help.
Matsumura knows that radiation is killing him, but refuses to worry about it.
Matsumura discovered thousands of cows that died in closed pens.
He also freed many animals that were left on the chain by their owners.
The government forbade him to be there, but this does not stop him.
He came here in 2011 and has been living here for 4 years.
He relies solely on donations from volunteers.
Fans call it the Fukushima Animal Keeper.
