My policy is for Stacym Somalis to go to homes where they will NOT have open access to the outside
From personal experience I can say that it is highly likely that a Stacym Somali with free roaming access to the 'great outdoors' will become a casualty as a result of:
▪ Injury or death from road traffic accident or another animal
So if you want a free roaming Somali then please do not come to me
