323 rein­deer killed by light­ning in Nor­way

The Myanmar Times - - World -

More than 300 wild rein­deer have been killed by light­ning in south­ern Nor­way in the largest such in­ci­dent known to date. The 323 rein­deer were found on Au­gust 26 by a game­keeper on the Har­dan­gervidda plateau, a na­tional park where Europe’s largest herd of some 10,000 wild rein­deer roam freely. Tele­vi­sion footage showed the an­i­mals’ dead bod­ies ly­ing close to­gether on the ground. Rein­deer are social crea­tures and usu­ally move in packs.
