Rome, March 8 - High levels of radioactivity found
in wild boars in Piedmont possibly stems from Ukraine's
Chernobyl nuclear meltdown that happened in 1986 which deposited
contamination through much of Europe, Italian wildlife and
forestry authorities said on Friday.
Testing for parasites among boars in the Valesia area near
the Piedmont town of Vercelli revealed extremely high levels of
Cesium 137.
An emergency meeting was called on Friday to discuss next
steps.
Authorities also said that the contamination could
originate from toxic waste dumps or a local nuclear reactor that
was dismantled in 1987.
