The animals were organized in a “spontaneous” herd, but have different behaviors from those typical of animals that we are used to seeing on farms.
Researchers at the Chernobyl Reserve for Radiation and the Ecological Biosphere say the workforce is well-structured, always works in harmony and protects little ones. Calves choose the safest place in the group, between an adult bull and cows, and have adapted to the terrible winter temperatures.
This is not the first case of this type of herd. After the Chernobyl accident, there was a herd of wild cattle around the former village of Chistogalivka for almost a year, then it was moved to an experimental farm and, since 2017, specialists make regular observations on the behavior of these herds.
In a very distant past, in these areas lived what can be considered the ancestors of the golden oxen (the scientific name Bos primigenius, meaning primitive ox).
The last specimen died of natural causes in 1627 in the Jaktorów Forest in Poland. The species has become extinct due to several causes: human hunting, the advancement of agricultural land in the wild and diseases transmitted by domestic animals.
The Chernobyl nuclear accident was a major accident at the nuclear power plant on April 26, 1986, which consisted of an explosion of the plant followed by radioactive contamination of the surrounding area.
This disaster is considered to be the worst accident in the history of nuclear energy. A cloud of radioactive precipitation headed for the western parts of the Soviet Union, Europe and the eastern parts of North America. Large areas of Ukraine, Belarus and Russia were heavily contaminated, evacuating about 336,000 people.
