According to reporter Charles Hawley, "as Germany's wild boar population has skyrocketed in recent years, so too has the number of animals contaminated by radioactivity left over from the Chernobyl meltdown," which took place almost 25 years ago. Apparently, mushrooms and truffles, which the hogs like to eat, are "particularly efficient at absorbing radioactivity."

Sadly, Hawley doesn't answer any of the most-pressing questions: Do the wild pigs have any extra tusks? Do they glow green? Do they have magical superpowers?
