If you have not heard about this, Denmark because of an alleged COVID mutation was on course to cull all farmed mink!! I believe one article said they may have 13 million or more of them. Hopefully, this article means they did not. Some were killed apparently per the AP story below. Hopefully, it stays at that low number.
Here is a related thread on CAF:
Now, to the story:
Danish agriculture minister quits over mink culling fiasco
COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — The Danish minister in charge of farming resigned Wednesday as he took the blame for the government ordering the culling of all farmed mink without having the necessary legislation in place first.
The culling was ordered after a mutated version of the coronavirus was found in some farms and had infected people. There is no evidence that the mutated version is more dangerous but the government moved quickly out of safety, though it lacked the legal basis to order the killing of healthy animals too.
“I have today informed the prime minister that I want to resign from the government,” said Mogens Jensen, the 57-year-old agriculture minister.
