Rudolph Gets a Makeover!!!!
on his antlers?!
Recently in Finland, there have been many car accidents involving reindeer. To help prevent these accidents from occuring, some scientists have taken a leap forward and have been painting fluorescent paints on some reindeers' antlers, so it will be easier to spot one in a car at night.
(of the Finnish Reindeer Herder's Association)
Anne Olilla says that 20 reindeers have had their antlers painted in fluorescent paints and are being observed to see if the paints are resistant to the harsh climate.
If this is successful, the reindeer will be free to roam Lapland, an area in northern Finland.
