The police – through the National Map of Security Threats – received reports in the autumn of last year about “stray dogs roaming around” in the Krynki commune (Podlaskie Voivodeship). On the spot, it turned out that they were not dogs, but bulls that walked unsupervised in the surrounding villages. Now – as the officers inform – the owner of the cattle has been punished. By the court’s decision, the man must pay dearly.
Internet users, using the National Map of Security Threats, informed about stray dogs wandering around the Krynki commune.
After verification of the applications, it turned out that it was not about dogs, but about cattle that walked unsupervised in the surrounding villages. The information was received by the police at the turn of October and November last year. However, only now the officers informed about the case.
