A worker installs a portion of a fence along the Danish border with Germany that is meant to stop wild boar from entering Denmark, on January 31st, 2019, near Tonder, Denmark. Danish authorities are hoping the new 70-kilometer fence will prevent a possible spread of African swine fever from Eastern European wild boar to domestic pigs. Denmark has a large pork industry, and authorities fear a possibly devastating impact should African swine fever reach Danish farms.
