Subject: Lightning Strike Kills More Than 300 Wild Reindeer In Norway

Written By: Philip Eno on 09/03/16 at 10:34 pm

A lightning strike has killed more than 300 wild reindeer in Norway, in what officials described as an unusually large natural disaster.

Aerial footage shows reindeer carcasses scattered across a small area on the Hardangervidda mountain plateau.

The footage was released by the Norwegian Environment Agency, which said 323 animals were killed, including 70 calves.

Agency spokesman Kjartan Knutsen said it is not uncommon for reindeer or other wildlife to be killed by lightning strikes, "but we have not heard about such numbers before."
