Sheriff in Pursuit of Reindeer

By pegasus     Dec 1, 2006 in Entertainment
"That was a new experience for me," the 50-year-old officer told The Associated Press on Tuesday. "It isn't normal procedure for a police officer to grab a reindeer through his car window. I've never heard of it before."
Acting Sheriff Klemet Klemetsen acted quickly to contain a runaway reindeer that was spooked by dogs. The panicked animal ran down the highway almost causing several accidents. Drivers reported the reindeer and Klemetsen went in pursuit once he spotted the animal. He pulled up alongside the animal, rolled down his window and grabbed the reindeer. He managed to bring it to a halt as he slowed the police car.
Although the roads were icy and the reindeer was panicky, thankfully none of the motorists were injured or the reindeer for that matter!
Well, after all it is the season for reindeer!
