After the slaughter of all of its huge herd of mink to fight against Covid-19, Denmark, the former world’s largest exporter, will reauthorize their breeding, the Ministry of Agriculture announced on Friday.
Breeders will have to stick to a strict infection prevention and control model developed by veterinary and health authorities, it is specified.

The measure had been taken at full speed to combat the risk of mutation of the coronavirus in fur animals, and all breeding was then banned in 2021 and 2022.
The culling campaign turned into a political nightmare for the Social Democratic executive, as it later turned out that the government had no legal basis to impose it on herders.
