Denmark starts digging up minks to prevent water pollution

Denmark has now begun excavating the decomposing bodies of some 4M mink, fearing they will pollute drinking water or a bathing lake. In November, amid fears the animals could re-transmit the Covid to humans after a mutated form of the virus was found on mink farms, the country culled its minks population. More than 17M animals were culled. The excavated remains are now to be incinerated.

Why is it that every government solution comes with a new set of problems? It's almost like they don't think things through.

In my opinion the most important aspekt of this story, is that our premiere minister (i myself am danish) illegally Said in a Press conference to euthanize the minks, while not having the legal authority ... this of course led to a lot of passing the Ball around in regards to blame, which, again of course, hasn’t seen our premier minister impeached ...

Poor animals, wasn't enough to be genocided, now their bodies get dug up. This whole affair has been all kinds of fucked.

I feel so bad for them. I wonder if they even knew if that specific mutated version could be passed to humans. Out of all the diseases in the world, zoonotic ones make up a pretty small amount. Not to mention covid is rarely transmitted when close contact isn’t made, and I think it’s safe to say that very few people have close contact with wild minks. Maybe I’m just a crazy animal lover (plus I have a ferret so I have an extra soft spot of anyone in the weasel family) but it just feels like they went too far on this one

My question is, why not incinerate them in the first place? I mean any ecologist or educated layman could tell you that a whole bunch of rotting corpses in the ground is gonna pollute nearby water sources, doubly so since they were culled due to COVID.

This was a disgusting endeavor in the first place. Killing 17 million other living beings just for you. It most likely wasn't a danger anyway.
