Denmark is building a wall to keep out unwelcome intruders from Germany, but not the kind that the U.S is talking about. They are hoping to erect a wall along the Danish-German border to stop wild boars from getting in and spreading African swine fever in their sizeable domestic pig population.  Construction of the wall has begun and is expected to cost just over 17 million New Zealand dollars. The Germans are doubtful the wall will stop the spread of the fever as it can also be carried by humans. Journalist Tom Carstensen explains what's happening at the border.
