A herd of sheep is to be deployed in the province of Flevoland to prevent people from having sex in public. A campground owner has hired the 30 sheep to scare off the sex tourists. 

According to the owner of the campsite, fewer "normal" people and families with children are visiting the nearby nudist beach because of the sexcapades on the beach and in the nearby woods. The sheep will patrol the area six times a week.
