Finland Spraying Reindeer Antlers With Reflective Paint To Prevent Car Accidents

reflective-antler-reindeer.jpg

Seen here looking suspiciously like the Grinch's homemade reindeer, a reindeer in Norway poses with its reflective painted antlers, or 'bling sticks' as they like to refer to them. Herders in Norway have recently started painting their reindeer's antlers and fur with reflective paint to prevent traffic accidents because motorists can't see them. Sadly, nearly 4,000 reindeer die each year in Norway due to traffic accidents. For reference, that's 3,992 more than are going to die in the US this year if Santa doesn't f***ing bring me what I want.

Thanks to Marcobar, who once painted himself green and stood behind a meteorologist for the entirety of his weather report without him knowing.

    Bob with your antlers so bright, you will not get hit by a car tonight. ;D

    All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names...

    Am I the only one thinking "EXPECTO PATRONUM!" right now?

  • Guest

    yes

  • Finland or Norway? Which is it?
    I've checked and it's Finland.
    Norway and Finland aren't interchangeable, you know.

    Isn't this just going to make these deer walking targets for predators?

  • Ollie Williams

    It's reflective paint, so unless a flash, headlight, or other direct light sources is pointing at the deer, they look like normal antlers.

    Moonlight?

  • AniZaeger

    Reflective (or, more precisely, retroreflective) paint requires that the light source come from the same direction as the observer. Unless that predator happens to be directly between the moon and the deer, they won't see any reflection.
