Minks in Denmark which were culled and buried in huge numbers to prevent a mutated form of coronavirus from spreading have remerged from the earth, triggering a new concern in the country.

Photos and videos of the macabre phenomenon have now been circulated on social media. According to an AFP report, thousands of dead minks re-emerged from their graves in a military training field outside the western town of Holstebro.

Just a few days ago, a large number of the carnivorous mammals had been put into an improvised mass grave in the area.

How is it happening?

The carcasses of the minks decomposed quickly and formed gases, that expanded and pushed the bodies up from the shallow graves, according to local police.

Following the bizarre incident, Denmark’s environment ministry said minks should be covered by at least five feet of Earth, which was not followed in the town of Holstebro.

According to public broadcaster DR, the culled minks were buried only 100 centimeters of dirt in a field outside Holstebro.

That’s not the only problem. The animals were apparently buried close to a lake, sparking fears of phosphorus and nitrogen pollution. Officials, however, have promised to soon fix the problem.

“To avoid potential problems for animals and humans the area will be monitored 24 hours a day until a fence is put up,” the ministry was quoted by AFP.

Denmark announced earlier this month that it would cull more than 15 million minks to prevent the outbreak of a mutated version of the novel coronavirus.

According to latest reports, more than 10 million minks have already been culled in the country.
