Faroe coppers on quest to combat loose dogs in tiny, remote village of Tjørnuvík

It appears loose dogs are becoming a major concern in the village of Tjørnuvík on Streymoy.

Yesterday police officers went to the tiny village, which is a major tourist attraction, to deal with the issue, writes Faroese news site In.fo.

The Faroe Islands Police states in a comment to In.fo that in this case it is normal procedure to issue a warning to the dog owners and if the problem repeats itself the dog owners will be fined and required to insure the dogs in accordance to The Animal Welfare Act.

In.fo writes that in the village of Tjørnuvík it has been normal that dogs are on the loose while their owners are out-of-village for work.
