« ZOMBIE » mink « got out of the grave » after millions were killed and buried in Denmark over coronavirus fears.
Horrible images show hordes of animal carcasses reappearing in a mass burial site in the Holstebro military complex in the northwest of the country.
The Danish government announced a culling between 15 and 17 million mink earlier this month after scientists raised concerns about a strong new strain of coronavirus spreading through animal populations.
Police spokesman Thomas Kristensen told DR: “During the decomposition, gases are generated that cause the bodies to swell a little and, in the worst case, be pushed out of the ground. ”
To prevent the carcasses from rising to the surface, officials pledged to bury the mink deeper in the ground and to put more soil over the dead animals.
DR reports that the mammals are now being buried under 2. 5 meters of floor instead of one.
Researchers at the National Serum Institute in Copenhagen discovered mutations in the virus’ spike protein in the mink strain that they feared could make a vaccine less effective if passed back to humans.
Kare Molbak, director at the State Serum Institute, told Reuters: “The worst scenario is a new pandemic that starts all over from Denmark. ”
But the country was shaken when images of mass graves of slaughtered mink surfaced in the country – which sparked the anger of the farmers.
The Danish government later apologized and admitted that their appeal to slaughter the mink had no legal basis.
Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said: “Even if we were in a rush, we should have been fully aware that new laws are needed and not.
Farmers said the cull, estimated to cost up to £ 600 million, could mean the end of the lucrative industry.
It comes when Denmark set a daily record in coronavirus cases with 1. 367 new infections reported, bringing the total to 73 in the country. 021 increased.
