Twenty-four reindeer hit and killed by train
Reindeer in northern Norway - Tom Olliver

Twenty-four reindeer have died and more possibly been injured in northern Norway after they were hit by a train.
"This winter has started in the worst possible way," the deer's owner, Ole-Henrik Kappfjell, told NRK on Tuesday afternoon. "It seems that more animals are injured." 
 
The animals were crossing the Nordland line in the rural Vefsn municipality when the train hit. 
 
The herders have been lobbying for wildlife fences alongside the track after losing some 4,000 elk and reindeer to train collisions over the past decade.
