Those who have lately been to Pripyat often say that the zone has less animals now than it used to. Yes, it’s more difficult to meet an animal there today. But not because of decrease of animal population but due to our disability to see them. The territory is getting more and more overgrown, the forests become higher, the roads look pretty much like tunnels. No wonder we don’t notice animals in Pripyat as we used to.
Quite on the contrary some species in the zone are even growing in population. This fact is confirmed by an automated photo survey – there are many hidden palm-sized cameras in the bushes of Pripyat.
