How to act around cattle during hikes
While hiking around the many, well-marked mountain paths you will often encounter herds of cattle. But, don't be worried! Cows are peace-loving animals. If you meet with mother cows and calves, you should remember these 5 important points:
- If possible, take the longer way around herds and avoid direct contact with the animals.
- Do not leave marked paths or traverse open fields
- Leash your dog at all times. However, if you encounter a situation where a mother cow feels endangered, unleash your dog and let him take flight.
- Do not pet or feed calves, because it could awaken the mother's protection instinct.
- Avoid loud sounds and spontaneous movements.
With those simple tips you are always on the safe side when hiking around the surrounding farms and alpine fields in the Lammertal.
