Bunny Without Ears Found Near Japanese Nuclear Plant

File photo. Digital Vision/Thinkstock(TOKYO) -- A newborn bunny has been discovered without ears in Namie City, Japan, just outside the 18-mile exclusion zone around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

Though scientists say there's no evidence the rabbit's defect was caused by radioactivity, it has become a symbol of people's fears of radiation after the Fukushima plant was damaged by the 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami in March.

The rabbit was found in May by 56-year-old Yuko Sugimoto.
