Oh I remember - the pigs are radioactive

Add to the long list of environmental concerns (and it is indeed a long list) -- now we have radioactive wild pigs (also called boars) roaming the Czech Republic forests.

The problem is that the pigs are eating a form of mushroom (false truffle) that's absorbing cesium-137, which is radioactive, from the Chernobyl disaster.

And the pigs are also an important ingredient in goulash.  The makers of the goulash are testing the pigs, but the bad news is that about half of them are turning out to be hot.

Might have to make chicken goulash.'

Wild boars roam Czech forests - and some of them are radioactive
