Denmark is going to start building a 70-kilometer fence on the border with Germany. About this reports Deutsche Welle.

This design should protect the Danish domestic swine from German wild boars are vectors of African swine fever. It is noted that neither in the Kingdom nor in Germany, never recorded cases of this disease, however, they were registered in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland.

A fence with a height of half a meter erected in 2019. The construction fence will cost 11 million euros.

Many believe that the fence will not help to solve the problem, but environmentalists fear that the fence will prevent the migration of other animals — deer, wolves, otters, foxes.

In June this year the Parliament adopted a decision on construction. It is actively supported by MPs from the right populist Danish people’s party. In elections in June last year she got 37 seats out of 179.
