The world’s largest mink producer, Denmark, says it plans to cull more than 15 million of the animals, due to fears that a Covid-19 mutation moving from mink to humans could jeopardise future vaccines.

At a press conference on Wednesday, the Danish prime minister, Mette Frederiksen, said 12 people are already infected with the mutated virus and that the mink are now considered a public health risk.

“The mutated virus in mink may pose a risk to the effectiveness of a future vaccine,” Frederiksen said.

She said the army, police, and national emergency service would be mobilised to help farms with the mink cull, which will eradicate the entire Danish herd.

The authorities and breeders have already been culling the animals over the past few weeks in a bid to contain the spread of Covid-19.

Reuters reported that Denmark’s health minister said about half of 783 infected people in northern Denmark, home to a large number of mink breeders, had been found to have infections stemming from the farms.

Denmark is the world’s largest producer of mink fur and has 15 to 17 million animals on about 1,100 farms. According to reports, the latest figures from the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration, say Covid-19 infections have been found on more than 200 mink farms. The figures were confirmed by a Danish police press officer.

Finnish fur auctioneer Magnus Ljung, CEO of Saga Furs, was watching the Danish announcement. “It’s a shock. They will kill all mink in Denmark. They are talking about the risk of Covid-19 mutating in the mink, and going from mink to humans, and potentially affecting a future human vaccine.”

Ljung estimated the value of the 2020 mink population in Denmark to be between €350m and €400m (£270m-£360m).

“They got control of [Covid-19 mink infections] in Holland and there were a few cases in Spain and in Sweden. But it was all kept under control. [The Danish cull] is unexpected, for sure. Yes, it could happen in other countries. But I don’t want to speculate,” said Ljung.

“What we really need to do is end mink farming entirely and retrain the farmers,” said Birgitte Damm, policy adviser and vet with NGO Animal Protection Denmark.

My God What idiocy. Learn from your neighbor Sweden who has one of the lowest mortality rates in Europe via herd immunity. Fear is the mind killer. This proves it.

Trapping or raising animals for their pelt is so 20th century, needs to stop. Maybe they can be turned loose in a forest/wildlife reserve?


Next it will be cows, chickens, pork, etc only thing safe will be burgers made from human feces and up cycled food.


PSYCHOPATHS!!!!! And I need to remind people…..Sociopaths and Psychopaths are NOT HUMAN!! This isn’t about ‘some virus’, it’s about putting more of the worlds population OUT OF BUSINESS!! On one hand, I do NOT want these animals raised for peoples VANITY. So, YES, ‘mink farming’ needs to END!! But using a NOTHING ‘virus’ to achieve that is DANGEROUS!! ALL animals are fair game, after this!! INCLUDING your ‘family members’ (pets)!! WHAT are people going to do when governments start coming for your cats & dogs???

Most of the parties in the Danish parliament voted for a new danish climate law that has a CO2 reduction target of 70%!!! Yes even conservatives are in on this. Commercials on TV are filled with “sustainable” this and that. It is a green nightmare.


This will continue down to virtually any animals that takes their fancy. It will continue only until every last Psychopath has been disarmed.

This story just took an interesting turn. It turns out that killing healthy mink is illegal. Now the government wants to rush a new bill through to make it legal but it turns out there is no backup in parliament for it.


They’re going after our food meats!
