Reindeer in Norway have been fitted with reflectors this year to prevent them from being hit by cars.
Over 200,000 animals will be tagged in this way to cut down on the 500 that are killed each year by motorists, with their reflective collars and tags the reindeer are far easier to see in the dark.

Let me guess, are they red, glowing and attached to the end of the snout? Merry Christmas everyone!

Sounds like a good idea. Makes it easier for low flying aircraft to avoid hitting Santa this year. Merry Christmas everyone!

That's a really brilliant idea! Maybe others will take it on board, like we have deer that often get on the main roads in County Down and this would certainly help to avoid accidents.
