Digging machines overturning piles of dead minks into trenches on Gotland.

Members of parliament from the opposition in Denmark have called on the government to exhume the remains of millions of mink animals that were buried in mass graves amid fears of the spread of Covid-19 disease.

The two burial sites on “Gotland” are very controversial – one near a bathing lake and the other not far from a source of drinking water.

The discovery of a mutated form of the virus had caused the slaughter of about 17 million mink animals, which led to the destruction of the Danish fur industry – the largest in the European Union.

The government has admitted that the slaughter process has been poorly handled, but politicians are now looking at how best to get rid of the more than 10,000 tons of dead mink animals.
