Denmark: The Ugly Business of Fur Farms | Focus on Europe

The global fur market is booming. One fifth of global demand for mink is met by Denmark. The country is home to over 1,400 mink farms, where animals are reportedly kept under hellish conditions.

Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:

The coronavirus was found at a mink fur business in Denmark. It is the first time this has happened in the country, the biggest producing country of mink pelts in the world.

The infected animals were discovered after a company employee tested positive for the coronavirus. All minks are killed.

In the Netherlands, the coronavirus has already been found at fifteen mink farms. More than half a million animals have been killed here.
