Overseas Network, November 17th. Due to the massive spread of the Coronavirus pandemic mink, Denmark has ordered a nationwide killing, but then suspended it amid protests. According to a report by the Russian Satellite News Agency on November 17, the Danish government has obtained the majority support of the coalition parties and can continue this “chaotic plan.”
According to reports, the support of the Social Democratic Party, the ruling party of Denmark, has been enough to allow the killing plan to continue. “I am very happy to reach an agreement and bring peace and tranquillity to this large-scale killing.”
Danish Minister of Agriculture Janssen said. “The government’s announcement of the killing of mink is a heavy decision. We also know that this will give the industry a business operation. It has a far-reaching impact.” He admitted that the plan has been “chaotic” since its implementation, but it is “necessary”.
It is understood that this agreement states that before December 31, 2021, Denmark will temporarily ban the farming of mink, and all farmed mink must be killed. In addition, for each mink killed before November 19, the breeder will receive a compensation of $5, but the specific compensation agreement has not yet been reached.
On November 4, the Danish government announced that all about 17 million minks across the country would be hunted and killed to control the spread of the Coronavirus.
However, the plan was suspended after being criticized by the opposition. The Danish Prime Minister also apologized for this, acknowledging that the move had no legal basis.
