Norway's Reindeer Police suspect foul play after a herd of 24 reindeers was found dead in the mountains of far northern Norway.

"The Reindeer Police have been at the scene and have found evidence that suggests that the animals were killed intentionally," Andreas Haugaasen of the Western Finnmark Police told Finnmark Dagblad. 
The 24 animals were found dead on Friday under a mountain ledge in Porsanger, at most northerly tip of Norway 
The Reindeer Police, created in 1949, is a 14-strong branch of the Norwegian Police tasked with protecting Sami reindeer herders.
