Mutant Radioactive Fauna Terrorize Tri-Cites (Video)

There are a number of news stories about the capture of a radioactive rabbit on November 4th at the Hanford Nuclear reservation in Southeastern Washington State. Apparently workers find the exposed rabbits by monitoring their glowing poop droppings.  I wonder if these rabbits could lead to a new species of mutant fauna the likes of the Rodan monster I remember from the 1956 science fiction movie about a flying pterodactyl wreaking destruction on Japan. But, what's more likely is that humans end up getting exposed to radioactivity when the contaminated nuclear waste enters the ground water that eventually gets into the Columbia river and its tributaries. Unfortunately, the possibility of that happening is NOT science fiction.
