In Alaska they have the "Running of the Reindeer". It's like the Running of the Bulls in Spain but they do it in the winter with Reindeer. :lmao:

Whoa at first I thought they were dogs, then for some reason I thought they were cougars, then I realized from looking at it close up that they were reindeer....

From far away I mistook them for dogs! They're surprisingly small.. but that could just be perspective playing with me =P

it's not, its jut because the deer are in a different light spot to their riders. it's just the lighting.

"Both sexes grow antlers, though they are typically larger in males. However, there are a few populations in which females lack antlers completely." Could be that =) Pretty sure the caribou's up north Finland have females like that.

I guess they have been cut off, to prevent them from damaging humans. If that's so, it is a pity, to say the least.
