Ah, 2020. It is truly not the worst year in human history – somewhere between 1936-1949 AD would be my guess – but it is definitely one of the strangest. The writer of this piece was being just a little too arch here:
Mink infected with a mutated strain of COVID-19 in Denmark appear to be rising from the dead, igniting a national frenzy and calls from local officials to cremate mink carcasses.
While the sight itself is certainly terrifying for the residents of West Jutland, a region of the country grappling with confirmed COVID-19 cases connected to mink, there is likely a scientific explanation for the zombie-like reemergence from their graves.
Yes, of course there was; the bodies weren’t buried deep enough and internal gasses pushed them to the surface. They came up with ‘six feet under’ for a reason, folks. Sheesh.
