Korean DMZ An "Accidental Paradise"

"The DMZ, you ask, isn't that the dividing line between North and South Korea established after the Korean War?" reads a CNN article today that you can read (or watch the video) by clicking HERE. "Yes, and because it's lined with barbed wire, barricades, and landmines, the 4-km wide 250-km long strip of land has become what DMZ Forum president Sean Seung-ho Lee likes to call an 'accidental paradise.'  Hundreds of species of rare birds migrate here. The DMZ is also home to wild boar and Korean water deer. Some soldiers and farmers have even reported seeing black bears and leopards."
