The Mainichi reports that a "Fox finds way into highly radioactive reactor building at Fukushima plant" http://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20151229/p2a/00m/0na/007000c
The fox is about 1.3 meters long, and appeared on-camera on the morning of Dec. 21. It spent 7 to 8 minutes walking around within view before disappearing. TEPCO staff do not know how the animal got into the reactor building, and there was no sign of the fox on any of the walking or driving routes at the plant.
Majia here: I feel like there is a missing back-story. Perhaps the fox drew the short straw among the sentient animal people. Perhaps it is investigating for all the other creatures that KNOW something is very wrong at the site but have no way of understanding the scope of the problem the insane humans have created.
The fox has particular significance in Japanese cultural mythology, according to Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitsune):
Kitsune (狐, キツネ?, IPA: [kitsu͍ne] is the Japanese word for fox. Foxes are a common subject of Japanese folklore; in English, kitsune refers to them in this context. Stories depict them as intelligent beings and as possessing magical abilities that increase with their age and wisdom. According to Yōkai folklore, all foxes have the ability to shape shift into men or women. While some folktales speak of kitsune employing this ability to trick others—as foxes in folklore often do—other stories portray them as faithful guardians, friends, lovers, and wives. Foxes and human beings lived close together in ancient Japan; this companionship gave rise to legends about the creatures. Kitsune have become closely associated with Inari, a Shinto kami or spirit, and serve as its messengers.
According to this account, the fox serves as a messenger for Inari, who (also according to Wiki) is the god of fertility, rice, tea, agriculture, industry, and prosperity. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inari_%C5%8Ckami
Hence the tragic irony for the fox represents all that is at risk as a result of the human-engineered Fukushima crisis.
Perhaps the fox was sent by Inari to warn the people that all they hold dear is being threatened by the reactor.
I don't know what is true but I find it interesting that the fox was reported as untouched by the radiation levels in reactor 2, which reportedly are in places up to 10 sieverts an hour, a lethal dose.
December 21, when the fox was seen at reactor 2, was the day I saw a police car packed in the Futaba intersection.
December 21 was also the day I observed strange atmospheric effects at Daiichi, which caused one of the lights at the plant to appear unusually enlarged:
