Japanese dairy farmer Masakatsu Kosone looks at a cow that died of hunger at his farm in the village of Katsurao in Fukushima prefecture, 25 kms west of the stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant on May 3, 2011 after returning to his farm from a shelter in Fukushima City. The March 11 earthquake and subsequent tsunami left some 26,000 dead or missing and obliterated whole towns and villages on the northeast coast. Thousands of farm animals died of hunger in the weeks following the quake as authorities created an exclusion zone around the Fukushima nuclear plant.
