Popular gas station receives unexpected furry visit from the mountains

The Effo gas station in Kollfjarðadalur, near the village of Kollfjørður on Streymoy, is arguably THE go-to station for people, traveling to Vágar airport. Thus, it is perhaps only appropriate that it also visited by some of our dear and oh-so lovable grass-eating furry friends.

The Effo gas station in Kollfjarðadalur, near the village of Kollfjørður on Streymoy, is arguably THE go-to station for people, traveling to Vágar airport.

Thus, it is perhaps only appropriate that it also visited by some of our dear and oh-so lovable grass-eating furry friends.

Yesterday, a ewe was spotted in the popular gas-station together with her lamb (we assume it was hers), much to the delight of the surprised onlookers who managed to snap a photo of the visitors from the mountains.

This is not the first furry intrusion of the year.

On Good Friday, a flock of sheep went to Vágar Airport  to welcome Easter visitors to the Faroe Islands.
