Driver is at fault

31 07 2013

Almost 20 sheep, mostly lambs, were hit by cars in the West Fjords last week. This is  worst week in the region concerning sheep fatalities caused by traffic accidents so far this summer. The police in Ísafjörður  are regularly contacted because of traffic accidents involving sheep. However, in spite of their frequency and occasional damage of cars, there have been no injuries to people.

Sheep roam freely in Iceland in the summer and the roads in the West Fjords are not fenced off. If you hit and kill a lamb, you must contact the farmer (based on the ear tag) and pay for the loss. So just slow down!
