How disgusting! The humans that want nuclear should go in there themselves. If they can't do it themselves, don't subject innocent animals to it. I see Stupid Baby Stupid isn't just about oil drilling.

This is just awful, no thought for the animals! Why can't you use robotic equipment or drone remote-controlled airplanes, AND FOR 18 MONTHS! GUARANTEED DEATH for those poor mules. But then, what the hey, they probably got them from the BLM, who doesn't care about horses, let alone a poor mule. Nasty experiment on the animal that willingly labors for us.

WHAT THE HELL DID THEY INVENT GEIGER COUNTERS FOR??? This is insane. Geiger counters can give them a far more accurate reading on the level of radiation. Stupid, just plain stupid.
