Christmas may have to be canceled this year.

Santa’s Reindeer have been killed by poachers

The resulting dinners look delicious

Apparently some hunters from Michigan, entered Alaska to do some hunting.  They must have gotten lost and kept heading north. They ended up at the North Pole.  When they got there they couldn’t believe their eyes at the size of the antlered animals.  “I’d never seen such large animals.  Much larger than the white tail deer we hunt in Michigan.” Bob Terrance explained.  “My buddies and I just got so excited we just kept letting the bullets fly.  We killed 9 of the reindeer.  It wasn’t until we got closer that we noticed they had collars on with names on them.”  Dasher, Dance, Prancer, Vixen, Donner, Blitzen, Comet, Cupid and even Rudolph were killed in the incident. 







Santa said he’s going to try, but he’s pretty sure he won’t be able to train new reindeer to fly in the month and a half left until Christmas.  “Reindeer are smart animals, I can train just about any one of them.  But it’s not just about the flying, there are a lot of addresses, many children all over the world.  I can’t teach them all the places they need to go in that amount of time.  I just don’t think I can make it this year.” Santa remarked



Children expecting gifts from Santa this year are likely to be very disappointed.  DNR officers in Alaska say the poachers responsible will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  Disappointing children is looked upon as very serious offense.
