When COVID-19 spread through mink farms last year, Denmark culled more than 15 million animals. Without breeding stock, farmers there can't start over. They are angry at what they say was the government's drastic response. In other countries, the industry is coming back. In Finland, there's even been a vaccine developed specifically for mink. Tom Carstensen reports from Copenhagen that Danish farmers want answers.
