Reindeer breeders in Finland think they may have found a way to prevent their animals from being hit by cars — glow-in-the-dark antlers.
Anne Ollila, head of Finland's Reindeer Herders' Association, told Agence France-Presse they have begun testing reflective sprays on the animals to make them more visible to motorists at night.
Around 4,000 Finnish reindeer are killed in traffic accidents every year, according to figures cited by the BBC.
