Chernobyl: Life in the Dead Zone

I watched this documentary yesterday and found it fascinating. It follows a group of feral cats in the "exclusion zone" around Chernobyl. One of the things I find most interesting about these kinds of documentaries is wondering how they got the photography without disturbing the wildlife.

Check it out if you get a chance.

I was thinking the same thing. How did they get these great closeups without disturbing the animals? Also, what risk was the crew exposed to while making their film? All in all a great documentary and one that really makes you think about things.

I thought that too but my main thought afterwards was that it didn't seem to make logical sense. Surely if any of the animals shown were to mate their progeny would be deformed and therefore the series title should really be qualified with 'temporary' . Have any animals had young there successfully, I wonder?
