Reuters: Radiation tests underway on dead and diseased seals in Alaska — Suffering bleeding lesions, hair loss (PHOTO)

Diseased seals in Alaska tested for radiation, Reuters, Dec. 27, 2011:

SOURCE: North Slope Dept. of Wildlife

Scientists in Alaska are investigating whether local seals are being sickened by radiation from Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant. […]

Biologists at first thought the seals were suffering from a virus, but they have so far been unable to identify one, and tests are now underway to find out if radiation is a factor. […]

Specifics

  • Scores [multiples of twenty] of ring seals have washed up
  • On Alaska’s Arctic coastline
  • Since July

Symptoms

  • Bleeding lesions on the hind flippers
  • Irritated skin around the nose and eyes
  • Patchy hair loss on the animals’ fur coats

John Kelley, Professor Emeritus at the Institute of Marine Science at the University of Alaska Fairbanks

  • “We recently received samples of seal tissue from diseased animals captured near St Lawrence Island with a request to examine the material for radioactivity”
  • “There is concern expressed by some members of the local communities that there may be some relationship to the Fukushima nuclear reactor’s damage”
  • “[Test results would not be available for] several weeks”
