A look at the pets and animals left behind the Fukushima disaster that hit Japan March 11, 2011. Sunday marks the one-year anniversary of the nuclear meltdown that caused 1,331 human deaths from related stress, Japan health officials said, and countless deaths of animals in the hotzone. Many animals survived not only the meltdown, but harsh winter conditions and a lack of reliable food, officials said. Rescue efforts have been ongoing, according to reports.
