Name: Arctic Wolf (Canis lupus arctos)
Location: Canadian Arctic and the northern parts of Greenland
Size: 1.8 m long, 79 cm high weight: 75 kg
Diet: Caribou, musk oxen, Arctic Hares, seals, ptarmigan, lemmings. Arctic wolves eat all their prey, also its bones and fur
Conservation status: common. They still live in the whole of its original range, because local conditions are too extreme for humans.
Interesting facts: mother gives birth to some 2-3 pups in May. Pups are born almost black – as they get older, colour of their fur turns to white. Adults are completely white, even in summer | arctic wolves live in the pack of some 7-10 members. Only alpha male and alpha female mate | arctic wolves have shorter ears and nose than other wolves species. They also have thicker fur, shorter legs | they do not run too fast, their advantage is persistence

Whoa, it looks really.. twisted?
Shutter speed 1/1000 & ISO 1600? That's why I thinked it's really a mutation. No ditherin' on a wolf, but his tail. So, shake movement's not visible.
Just how old's he? Even if there was a mutation, it might went out in a few generations. As far as I know, rad level in Chernobyl much lesser now (exponential progression decrease). Still dangerous, but some people tryin' to live on borderlands.
And if this' a joke - this' bad one. Our family's friend told me how he worked on the ruins of a reactor - some divisions of a Soviet Army was mobilized for that duty. Even now he can't forget this. Weird.

I agree. A lot of people and animals died, quickly or slowly. And the birth defects. And the economic loss in the billions. The radiation is continuing to leave a huge 'dead zone' around the plant, and the cement tomb that covers it is already crumbling.
Fukushima will prove worse, with it's melt-throughs of two reactors which the company actually knew of from the beginning but just lied about.

Wait... as far as I know, Fukushima station's builders aren't Japaneese?
