Dogs of Chernobyl: Local vet headed on unique mission
SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) — Most people think of the ruins of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant as a wasteland, devoid of life.
In reality, there are hundreds of dogs living there, the descents of animals left behind decades ago when the area was evacuated.
Now, a local vet is heading to the area to help control the dog population and get the animals the care they need.
