A strange report by the former editor of the Japan Times Weekly Yoichi Shimatsu on the Jeff Rense Radio program, Nov. 28, 2011:

Transcript Summary at 17:00 in

Yoichi Shimatsu

The real problem is not so much the wild boar but there’s another animal. There are two types of whats called a raccoon dog. One is very cute, like a raccoon, but they’re actually a wolf/dog-type species…

I live in the mountains of Japan, you get back from work very late at night and on the last train walk through the mountains in the late night and see these creatures… but these are not the cute ones, they are very long, much bigger than a fox, more like a wolf — long ugly snout, rat like face, long bushy tail. They go through garbage, eat insects, they’re scavengers, they’re predators.

Raccoon Dog

They’re also vampires, they unlocked a neighbors chicken coop — they unlatch it they go in they latch onto the neck and suck the blood out of them because they don’t like to eat the feathers.

Now these are the animals I’m really worried about… mutations… these things eat anything… and the mutation of these animals … they’re large enough to take down a child or an elderly person even an adult. I take an armful of rocks whenever they get close…

Raccoon Dog

They’re called raccoon dogs… extremely large and potentially dangerous. I think the mutation of these things in the wild of Fukushima now that they’re left alone… These are the animals that are just tearing the flesh off of cattle, leaving nothing… They’re quite dangerous animal.

Without the farmers there to shot them, these things will really flourish…

Like a nightmare scenario…

These are very primitive dogs, not raccoons… They’re really fearsome animals and they’re dangerous… I think there is a future threat, again the Pandora’s box is open…

  • Whoopie Whoopie

    Good f**king grief. It’s starting” I’m sure we’ll hear alot more stories like this. posted here:

  • Blown Camaro

    On the show, “Life After People”, the dogs were said to survive the extinction of man. I do not doubt this.

  • lam335 lam335

    I am skeptical of these claims. I don’t think so dramatic a mutation would occur in multiple animals so quickly (especially since he seems to imply that these creatures are fully grown). It seems possible that normally non-aggressive dog-like animals could simply be so starved for food that they have become much more aggressive and have resorted to attacking/eating animals they would not previously have tried to eat. But I think this guy’s claims are probably exaggerated–not necessarily intentionally, but perhaps when he sees these things in the dark his own anxiety about radiation-induced mutations is causing what he sees to seem even scarier and more bizarre than it actually is.

    Since it’s a radio interview, presumably he has not provided any pictures.

    I do not doubt that mutations are indeed occurring–they happened after Chernobyl, so they seem likely to occur in Japan. I just think the sensational claim about “mutated vampire dogs” is most likely a reflection of his own anxieties working upon his imagination in the dark of the night.

    • Whoopie Whoopie

      Mutations are coming. We know that from what we’ve learned about Radiation. We’ve got numerous people sick, we’ve got weird flowers and veggies growing. DO NOT PRESUME IT’S NOT RADIATION. These dogs have been running wild for 9 months.
      I dunno. I dont know what to THINK…except those damn PLANTS are still spewing the shit. WE WILL FIND OUT, AS WE GO ALONG HERE.

      • Whoopie Whoopie

        All THOSE reports (as you prob know) are at Fukushima Dairy.
        Mutated flowers ect.

        • lam335 lam335

          I’ve seen the mutated flowers. As I say, I don’t doubt that mutations are happening; I’m just skeptical that these raccoon dogs have mutated into what he calls a “sub-species” like this in seven months. One thing I notice in the pictures of mutated flowers, and also in the pictures of human deformities after Chernobyl, is how varied the mutations are. In the Cherno pictures, one child has a bulge coming out of his back, another one has no arms, another one has an eye that’s bulging out. Others have no discernible physical deformities, but they are mentally handicapped. I suppose a sub-species might arise from mutations over time (if animals with certain kinds of mutations survived better and reproduced better than others), but I don’t think you would see that in seven months. I’m also skeptical that the radiation exposure has made these creatures bigger and stronger that the usual raccoon dogs. From everything I’ve seen and read, radiation exposure only makes things bigger and stronger in comic books. In real-life, it causes things to be born with missing or deformed parts or smaller brains in a seemingly random way.

          I think what he’s seeing are the regular creatures, but perhaps whatever they normally eat is less available (perhaps as a result of radiation the creatures they normally eat have been less able to reproduce), so they are starving and therefore behaving more aggressively. Maybe the latest generation of them has a slightly under-developed brain (like the birds near Chernobyl), and maybe that has also made some of them more aggressive.

          • many moons

            Perhaps the radiation is changing behavior of animals…
            These animals look like a cross between a dog and a racoon. Perhaps before Fuku. something like this would not have occured.

          • nohobear nohobear

            thank you for injecting some science into this discussion of “mutant vampire dogs”. Emotions can sometimes run high on enenews, because we all care so deeply about this ongoing tragedy for the world.

            I agree, it’s probably behavioral changes brought on by hunger.

            There will be mutations, almost certainly. But other than some bacteria or fungi, you won’t see new subspecies created that quickly. Certainly not with small mammals. In a decade or more, yes.

    • Anthony Anthony

      So far ive learned only of gigantism in fish & plants. I hope thats something we can count on. Cant imagine the effects of giant ocean creatures given the amount of contanimation in the ocean. What the hell have we done here?

      • lam335 lam335

        Didn’t Godzilla come out of the ocean?

        Though in reality, I think vast amounts of sea life are simply going to be weakened, deformed, or killed by it, and the overall number of fish may decline in the most contaminated parts.

        I was thinking the other day, however, about the fact that the deepest parts of the ocean have some very exotic life forms that human beings rarely see. Overtime, I would imagine that much of the radioactive stuff dumped into the ocean will sink to the bottom, where those deep water creatives will be badly affects by it.

        It’s all very sad.

        • lam335 lam335

          Typos: creatures will be badly affected by it.

          Sometimes this text is just too small to proofread effectively.

  • Grampybone Grampybone

    “Ferocious furry raccoon dog slaughters family.” That will be the headline I really want to see. These animals won’t mutate and turn into anything but cancerous lumps of flesh after consuming all the dead farm animals. They may flourish but will die quickly as well.

    • Whoopie Whoopie

      One of you TALENTED WRITERS should write a book about this whole situation. Dang, it’d be a Money Maker NOW. 🙁

    • Johnny Blade Johnny Blade

      err,maybe a little bit different perhaps?lol-“Ferocious,furry raccoon dog slaughters family of TEPCO CEO & executives”!!-I’d rather see that slight change of detail than random! It’d make me happy to know the things were smart enough to know who to put on the menu and would scare the shit out of nuke industry d-bags who seem to be the only one’s on the menu!LOL! That is what we all saw on the TEPCO cam during the summer and everyone was all pissed off & feeling bad for it-remember?-we thought it was dying and it got up & went on its way from there looking ok??!! CRAZY!!lol, I might just write a “novel” about it as much as I clack away at the keyboard here! (I’m a “ramblin’ man)lol

      • Whoopie Whoopie

        Blade I always enjoy seeing/reading you.
        I think we all better pay attn, keep record (enenews) of all these frigging reports.
        “We’re traveling through another dimension – a dark, upside down world where NOTHING SEEMS RIGHT”

        • Whoopie Whoopie

          What I meant is Enenews HAS ALL THE FILES. THANK GOD.

        • Johnny Blade Johnny Blade

          Thanks Whoopie!! I’ve been following your input since I discovered ENE news & follow up to many of your links EXCEPT for HP because I’d found some of the earliest reporting on Fukushima’s radiological impact on the USA,including my neck of the woods and I was able to use the articles to gain some friends & family who have children to pay some attention to the issue & event before I was deemed to be some kind of an effin’ paranoid freak thanks to MSM and Obama’s “Operation DoLittle” in response to history’s biggest & worst disaster EVER known to man and yet Viagra & tampon commercials have fallen on more eyes than word of,EVEN where & WHAT Fukishima IS has been heard in peoples ears??!!How can there be people who didn’t ever even hear of Fukushima 9x out of 10 whenever I find a good opportunity to work it into a conversation?!!I’m pretty much resigned to the fact that it’s likely to be terminal for my bunch because even if they’re “coming around” to a logical way of thinking~finally(!) -Our “conditions” don’t allow the protective measures,basic equipment & neccessary items needed to commit to avoiding the hazards that survival in the 21st Century requires,but I’m hopeful of a change or timely windfall from an idea in time to complete my “shopping list” in time to make a difference & make a go of it.I’ve given up that hope I held for a noteworthy
          “success” at Fukushima & put my hopes into a lucky lotto ticket and/or successful last-minute scrounging & certain “skills & resource assets” earning an invitation for me & my small party of family members to billet & board in exchange for productive,positive contribution to the whole group’s efforts & well-being(unlikely2happen).It sucks worse when the proverbial “shit’s about to hit the propeller blades”while one’s already “up shit’s creek without a paddle” and a hole in the boat to boot!LOL!~BTW-thanks 4 the hug from etwas & the others kind words & concern last night 🙂 ~PEACE~

  • cripes! true or false, i do not like this idea of a wolf-sized raccoon-dog one bit, vampire or not.

    i agree, nobggy- the headline is dramatic in a tabloid “BAT-BOY FOUND LIVING IN CAVE!!!” kinda way.

    but still. i think i would take an armful of rocks – and a wrist-rocket, something, anything, if those critters lurked about my house in the dark. brrrrr.

    i don’t find raccoons cute, either. nasty.

  • dpl dpl

    nuts really big ones

  • Sevv Sevv

    This leaves the question how environment will react to radioactivity. Japan itself will (atleast for contamined ares) end up like chernobyl – flora and fauna reclaiming back the places, though it remains uncertain if those can actually exist with the radiation. Plants so far seem to be very tolerant to elevated radiation (and contamination), mushrooms even utilizing the radiation. For animals, it remains unclear in chernobyl if they actually can live with the radiation or it is just a continued immigration with deceasing. Different species – different reaction…

  • thelili

    Admins really? Newbies to the site are going to look at this and disregard what they should really be reading thinking this is a sensational site.

    Yep mutations have already started but maybe this should be in a different section.

    • lam335 lam335

      I was thinking the same thing. I want people to take this site seriously. I am concerned that this sort of sensational headline/story may cause people unfamiliar with the site to dismiss it.

      • Enenews Admin

        when you come across a former editor of the Japan Times Weekly saying these things, isn’t that news?

        • charlie3

          Yes, it’s news tnat stress and radiation poisoning is causing a Japanese journalist to panic about raccoons when the country he lives in is being destroyed by the worst nuclear accident in human history.

          • charlie3

            And here come the mad mutant monkeys! from Russia Today news agency:
            Wild monkeys to help measure Fukushima radiation

            ­Radiation rates in the woods near the Fukushima nuclear power plant will be measured with the help of wild monkeys who already live there, Fukushima University representatives announced on Saturday, according to Itar Tass. The animals will wear special collars, designed by Fukushima University scientists, that measure local radiation levels. The collars will transmit data remotely, providing information to scientists about the area’s vast forest territories. Currently, radiation is measured with the help of helicopters, which are unable to obtain the most accurate estimates. The two-month project is to kick off in spring 2012.

          in my proffesional opinion.. this guy is a nut job!! i thought i had issues.. this guy has ALOT more!! probaly brought on by a mixture of traumas… earthquake, yakusa etc!! he needs medication and needs a spine!!

          just my take! (humans are on top of the food chain in japan just behind radioisotopes!!) 🙁

            • arclight arclight

              still a nut job! 🙂 only because he.. with all his knowledge about these matters.. talks about common rural issues as opposed to the “meat of the subject”

              so he is either talking between the lines in some incsutable eastern manner or hes off his trolley (london expression)!!

              the same could be said about my feral ginger cat!! and these poodles would not have gone near her!! plutonium steroid or no!!

              personally, i found the article interesting mostly because i thought this mush was a fruit loose of the tree so to speak… the ruling classes eh? what would you do with them? eh admin? was worth an article though!

              although if i was to offer a critique i would have been a bit more pithy myself! maybe a bit more ooomph! bit less rural gossip maybe 🙂 but thats no insult to your style of editing of course!! 🙂

    We’ve got em all here up North…no grizzlies but so many coyotes that cats and small dogs are coming up missing…

    Has anyone considered the possibility of this being a genetic hybrid escapee from a lab?

    Wouldnt be surprised if the Japanese were dabbling in THAT unGodly perversion of science as well…

    But if it arose purely from the deep love between a dog and a raccoon with a little plutonium dust thrown in for excitement and greater stimulation, well, then, who are we to judge!

  • Novamind

    I would be more concerned of Domesticated Dogs abandened gone wild with no fear of man who hunt in packs.

  • We have scarier dogs then that here, … Hold on she’s knocking on the door ….

  • dosdos dosdos

    These are nothing new, they’ve been around for quite some time, and are well documented. There is much art and craft in the Japanese culture about these dog related creatures.

    They have been systematically hunted in Japan since the seventies, much like wolves in the US. Without the predatory pressure from man, they are flourishing again, forming packs in the no-go zone and surrounding mountains.

    • jimbojamesiv

      Thanks for the wiki link to Raccoon dogs, and I noticed that it suggests, as do the pictures above, that the Raccoon looks less like a dog and more like a cross between a raccoon and a fox.

      just like today do we really know what is going on at that site.
      poor little critters..
      nobody talks about the animal holocaust that happened to all those animals in all the towns farms and villages.

    This is starting to sound like “I am Legend”,a post apocalyptic world where nature begins to reclaim everything including the urban sprawl and mutations live in the darkness!

    • Whoopie Whoopie

      LOVE that Movie. Is that our future? I believe it MIGHT be. Then again, I might be wrong. But how could that be, when…
      DUNNO. I’m tired – going to bed. See y’all tomorrow

    • Novamind

      Go back a little farther to the original “The Omega Man”.

      • Even farther. The first adaptation of the “I Am Legend novella (which is quite good) was The Last Man on Earth (1964), possibly Vincent Price’s best performance. A shame as it was shot on a shoestring with shoddy sound and cinematography. Compelling nevertheless.

        The right word for Raccoon Dog (in Japan, there are other subspecies on the mainland) is Tanuki and these creatures have some legendary status of their own as protectors of nature. Studio Ghibli has a sad a rather beautiful anime film of them trying to prevent the takeover of a mountain homeland from the development of Tokyo’s suburbs (set in the 1960s).
        I think I saw somewhere that that mountain now has a hot spot from Fukishima …

        • Mount Tama or Tama Hills. I just checked and there are two Geiger counters going in that area and their readings (presumably one or two meter height, rain-protected, though I have no way of knowing) are quite low, in case anyone from there sees my IIRC above and gets worried. About .07 to .13 mcSv. Though I would be concerned, even so, if particulates from any of the radioactive waste incinerators are going that way.

          By contrast , here in western Oregon near the Cascades, the Corvallis radnet station is showing some peak Beta activity of over 100 clicks per minute. There’s a very heavy fog, very cold air, wet ground. My little SOEKS says it is avg. .15 indoors and out, but .20 on the grass. We may be getting more than Mt. Tama. So I might be bitten by a mutated raccoon sooner than Shizuku Tsukishima (in Whisper of the Heart, another Ghibli film — fictional character who lived in the Tama Hills in the 1990s) will be bitten by a mutated tanuki.

          Actually, we have a cougar running round the neighborhood according to reports. Much more dangerous than either, yet we’ve never had a reported attack by one in our area, over the last 150 years. FWIW. 😉

    I’ve never seen a racoon dog and never hope to see one. But if I stop and think of it, I’d rather see than be one.

      : D

        Yup, it is something to think about. Much more pleasant to think about a coon dog on my bare leg than thousands of Plutonium fuel rods oozing their guts into my tuna casserole.

  • Has a gestation period of only a couple of months (i.e. fast-growing cells, so a sure heat-seek for radiation). Radiation does affect the brain.

    Plus, this guy should know, he has to deal with them on his way home from work.

    Could be a distraction from the spewing reactors. Then again, it would likely draw more attention to them than distract.

    raccoon dog

    ( Nyctereutes procyonoides), member of the dog family (Canidae) native to eastern Asia and introduced into Europe. Some authorities place it in the raccoon family, Procyonidae. It resembles the raccoon in having dark facial markings that contrast with its yellowish brown coat, but it does not have a ringed tail. It has short, brown or blackish limbs, a heavy body, and rounded ears. Head and body length is 50-65 cm (20-26 inches); tail length, 13-18 cm; and weight, about 7.5 kg (16.5 pounds). Most active at night, the raccoon dog is omnivorous and feeds on small animals, fish, vegetation, and carrion. Litters contain 5-12 young, born after a gestation period reported at 60-79 days. The long fur of the raccoon dog is sold commercially as “Ussuri raccoon,” or “tanuki.”

    One night I was hitchin’ in Malibu Canyon, and it started to rain, so
    I climbed under one of those big concrete picnic tables, just enough space.
    I dozed, turned and tossed in my sleepin’ bag, and then I heard
    a strange noise and looked over to see a Big Mama and seven baby Raccoons, all
    bunched up and lookin’ at me, curious-like, about three feet away.
    I yelled “Get Outa Here, G’wan!”, and I grabbed a handful of duff and pine needles
    and threw it in the raccoon’s face, “Get OUTa HERE!”, but,
    the Raccoon, sneezed and coughed once,
    and then he said to me, ” Fuck OFF!”, and then trundled away, leaving me
    there under the picnic table.
    For Real!

  • Radio VicFromOregon

    I agree with you, Iam335. People left their animals to starve and they are becoming aggressive. Probably even less than hungry humans would become if abandoned in the same situation without help.

    Many may recall that Japan created an entire B rated movie industry based upon characters created out of the nightmare of nuclear radiation from Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in part as a way to cope. Much like American ranchers overreact to wolves and perpetuate myths that are spread throughout society about wolves eating children (not yet actually happened in the entire history of the United States), this journalist will have 60 years of cinematic drama shaping how he perceives these wild animals. I’d be scared sh–less without the social inculcation walking in the forest at night with any predator. But, dogs can pack and become very dangerous to people where other wild creatures would tend to stay away from humans at first scent regardless of how hungry they are, save a mother protecting her young. So, there is something to his fears. But, yeah, this will become the distraction. Kill the dogs, cut down the forests, burn the radiated debris, smile a lot. Ignore the men behind the curtain.

    Did you know there were no actual raccoons in Japan until they started importing them as pets, the result of an endearing cartoon ? Now they are a problem, getting into temples and shrines and doing what raccoons do, like in our own attics and garages.

    I wish this fellow was more worried about Japanese children.

    “They go through garbage, eat insects”. How dare they!

    I am fascinated that a (respected?) JTW editor could set up a rabbit-hole story like this, and that we all (myself included) have gone down it.

    Do such stories feed a need for denial, comic relief, distraction?… Why are we spending time on this thread as the world unravels?

    • or-well

      I think you may have answered your own question.
      “…comic relief,distraction…”
      And at the risk of offending some, although no offense intended, is not Rense also not about some entertainment ?

  • Distraction is about all we’ve got, unless we want to spend time in a Occupy camp, or go to Japan and lodge a complaint at the door of Tepco and the government, any of which is just about a hair more effective. If they went to the world-wide “let’s all go there and each put in ten minutes” approach, I’d be up for that — seeing as how I’m old — but they aren’t, are they? For me that leaves two things I can try — build a greenhouse and plant leafy greens inside — done that — or sit around looking for comic relief.

    • aigeezer aigeezer

      I’ve been thinking about that issue a lot, risabee (what can one do about the nuclear monster). I’m inspired by Whoopie’s energy and attitude, for instance. My guess is that succumbing to distractions is not a good thing to do (and yet here I am).

  • Right after this short audio cuts off, they talk about the first shark attack on the Russian coast ever recorded in history!! We got all sorts of animals and sea life affected by this now.

  • americancommntr

    I’m not going to doubt the guy. There’s some kind of ‘Chupacabra’ animal running around North America now, well documented, that is a blood sucker.

    What is strikingly odd, is how fast somebody thought to release wild horses in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Now, either whoever it was did it as a second thought, ‘Hey this is now a place we can try to re-establish the wild horse’, or ‘Now that the operation has been successful, we can start re-populating the area with the animals it used to have, now that it has been de-populated of humans.” It is highly likely that the effects of radiation on wild animal populations has been thoroughly studied and known about since at least the 60’s.

    There’s no doubt or conspiracy theory involved with the facts of some very wealthy people and liberal idea leaders having stated they wish humans were reduced in population to half a billion. Nor is there of some very wealthy organizations with a long mostly secret track record of doing their darndest to alter society and politics and to reduce fertility, by hook or by crook.

    The people are afraid of the dogs..
    I was afraid of wild dogs when I was a kid…
    I understand….

    Wild dogs..are part of the warning..concerning hiking it the Tokyo area.
    5. Wild Dog (野犬) – These wild dogs may attack humans looking for food. You can drive them away or give them food as a last resort and use that chance to get away.
    Concerns that radiation and hunger have made these and the abandoned dogs….a real threat…should not be underestimated..or laughed at.

    …old link..we have wild dogs here in America..
    Pop quiz..which one of the tarts in the Bible was thrown to the wild dogs in the street?

    • Heart of the Rose Heart of the Rose

      PS..Ok..I am still afraid of wild dogs..but as someone posted up above..nothing the old shot gun can’t handle.

    HOTR no one is laughing at the story itself because we know what it means. The headline should have been better. If it had been something about abandoned, starving dogs attacking residents it would have been a bit better I think. The part about mutations could have come in the body of the text.

      @the lili.. yes…the subject matter needed better presentation.
      This is very serious….
      I don’t believe the Japanese farmers have what they need to defend themselves.

  • thelili

    @HOTR the farmers are definitely in trouble. This Winter…it’s going to be very bad for them.

    @HOTR Shimatsu must be in complete panic mode internally. If there is anything I know about the press is that for any one item you see published in the news there are probably ten items that were buried in favor of it.

    The guy probably literally has info he could be killed for.

    • Heart of the Rose Heart of the Rose

      @the lili…My heart goes out to Mr. Shimatsu…and the farmers of Fukushima…whose stories of hunger and fear will go unheard.

  • thelili

    @HOTR I am thinking that Shimatsu should move at this point. He won’t though. He’s a good guy.

  • thelili

    @HOTR it is sad but that is how people are.

  • thelili

    @HOTR oh definitely 🙂 Each day I get a little slower and the pain gets a little greater. Each month the doc visits get a little less pleasant because really, at this point, what is there to talk about? In the back of my mind I know that one day all of this will fade with the morphine but until then…hee hee..I’m going to act out 😛
