“The project is about the following: a lot of stray animals, particularly dogs, have occurred at the Plant industrial site for a long period of time after the accident. The increase of their population bears the risks for people working at the site. The ChNPP cannot solve the problem of regulating the number of stray dogs using its own resources.”

“Hundreds of stray dogs are roaming an area near the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine. In 1986, more than 120,000 people were evacuated after an explosion at the plant. The dogs roaming nearby are descendants of the pets many families left behind.”
