  • Description

    A HUNT FOR "RADIO-ACTIVE" WILD ARCTIC GEESE IS CURRENTLY BEING CARRIED OUT IN SOUTHERN SWEDEN. THE GEESE WERE BRED ON NOVATA ZENLYA ISLAND, IN THE BARENTS SEA, WHERE THE SOVIET UNION CARRIED OUT SOME OF HER ATOMIC TESTS.

    THE BIRDS ARE BEING TESTED BY THE RADIO PHYSICS INSTITUTE, WORKING IN CONJUNCTION WITH LUND UNIVERSITY, TO SEE IF THEY ARE FIT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION. IF NOT, THE SWEDISH AUTHORITIES WILL FORBID THEM TO BE EATEN WHEN THEY COME INTO SEASON NEXT MONTH.

    A ZOOLOGIST OF THE UNIVERSITY SAID SHOT BIRDS ARE BEING SENT TO THE INSTITUTE FOR EXAMINATION - AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE EATEN WILD GEESE CAN GO THE INSTITUTE FOR A FREE CHECK-UP. AND THE POLICE WILL NOT PROSECUTE THEM FOR POACHING. IT IS DOUBTFUL, THOUGH, IF THE BIRDS WOULD HARM ANYONE.
