Reindeer have a free grazing right in the reindeer husbandry area irrespective of land ownership or possession rights. This is vital for practicing reindeer husbandry.
The free grazing right of reindeer is based on the historical right in the reindeer husbandry area and it is meant to be permanent right.
As reindeer pasture freely, there are different kinds of damages that can happen in the nature. Most common are damages caused by large carnivores. Also traffic and loose dogs cause damages annually.
Sometimes reindeer can cause damage whilst going to a specific place repeatedly.
