Can the Dogs of Chernobyl Teach Us New Ways to Survive?

From an AP story by Laura Ungar headlined “Can the dogs of Chernobyl teach us new tricks of survival?”:

More than 35 years after the world’s worst nuclear accident, the dogs of Chernobyl roam among decaying, abandoned buildings in and around the closed plant – somehow still able to find food, breed and survive.

Scientists hope that studying these dogs can teach humans new tricks about how to live in the harshest, most degraded environments, too.
