This can't be healthy.
About 50 million gallons of liquid waste from Cold War-era plutonium production were stored in a 13 square mile area in large tanks over 40 years ago. Those tanks also included radioactive cesium and strontium salts which are apparently irresistible to those of the rabbit persuasion.
I wonder how many six-legged bunnies or three-eared rabbits are hopping in the woods around those parts? Decades spent licking radioactive salts can't be good for a population.
