Polish farmers seek cash after virus-infected minks culled

first_imgWARSAW, Poland (AP) — A farmers’ organization in Poland is pressing the government to compensate mink farmers in case the animals have to be culled because of the coronavirus. The organization dispatched a letter to deputy agriculture minister on Tuesday asking for compensation following a recent decision to cull thousands of mink at a farm in northern Poland, where four out of 20 tested animals were infected with the coronavirus. The animals were culled Monday, in the country’s first such instance. The law doesn’t make farmers eligible for government compensation and the farmers’ organization wants that changed. Poland is one of the world’s biggest producers of mink furs.last_img
