10 rules on how to behave around grazing animals.
Austria’s farmers make an important contribution to preserving our country’s alpine landscape. We ask you as a visitor to treat this landscape with respect and to adapt your behaviour. The following ten rules indicate the correct way to act when crossing alpine pastures.
4. Always keep dogs under control and on a short leash. If you think you are going to be attacked by a grazing animal, let go of the leash immediately.
7. If grazing animals approach you, stay calm, do not turn your back on them and move out of the way of the animals.
8. Leave the pasture quickly as soon as you see early signs that the grazing animals are becoming nervous or restless.
