COPENHAGEN –  Mink farmers in Denmark will receive compensation upwards of 19 billion Danish crowns (US$3.1 billion), after the country’s entire mink population was culled over concerns surrounding a mutated strain of the coronavirus that was infecting farmers.

The financial aid will last until 2030 and has been calculated to cover lost revenues and the expense of idle machinery, Denmark’s finance ministry has said.

Animal rights organisation PETA had previously called on countries the world over to ban mink farms, warning that “any area that still farms mink could well be the next Wuhan”. Both the Netherlands and France have moved to ban such sites, but not until 2024 and ’25 respectively.
