Coronavirus infected minks, culled because of their mutant virus strain, have been seen ‘rising from their graves’ after a mass burial in Denmark.
Quite literally thousands of minks have been seen resurfacing from their graves in terrifying scenes.
The minks had been killed in Denmark after concerns of the animals spreading the disease.
In October, Denmark started culling millions of minks in the north of the country after COVID-19 infections were reported among the stock there.
It appeared they were been carrying a mutant strain of COVID, prompting concerns and leading to the nationwide cull.
According to a Danish news publication, there’s a scientific reason to why the minks have come back up from their graves.
Press Officer in the National Police Thomas Kristensen explained the gases caused the minks to expand leading to them penetrating the earth’s surface.
“In connection with the decay, some gases can be formed, which causes the whole thing to expand a little, and then in that way, in the worst case, they get pushed out of the ground,” he said.
They also said the light sand they were buried under may have contributed to the issue.
The minks have since been reburied deeper into the ground but he couldn’t deny that it might happen again.
