In 2009, a nationwide survey in Bosnia asking people about the threats in their local communities found that some communities were concerned about roaming dogs (rather than mine fields, crime or some other social ill). More specifically, the complaints mentioned dog attacks on people and domestic livestock. A Humane Community Development project in seven municipalities in Bosnia in 2013 proved very successful. The project has been very successful with reports of not only a significant reduction in roaming dogs and related problems but also greater citizen engagement with one another leading to improved civic cooperation both within and between the communities.
