EHD decimates deer herd
It has been confirmed that unseasonably warm weather and a bunch of tiny midges have decimated the reindeer population. EHD is caused by a tiny midge that does god knows what inside a deer but it’s not good. Several dead reindeer were all found at a water hole, and many off the other reindeer are still missing. Many of the remaining deer have split puss leaking hooves and will not be able to pull sleds this year in their weakened state. Native transportation is mostly out of commission and christmas deliveries may be delayed up to 13 months. Only 3 reindeer remain in the area with any kind of sled pulling experience.
Mr Claus may have found an answer
Mr Claus thinks he may have an answer. “The lazy reindeer have never been worth a crap at pulling sleds anyhow,” he stated “so I gave turkeys a shot.” The real birds were nothing but trouble, mainly because they slept all night long. “As soon as
the sun went down they all flew up in the trees and went to sleep. We could not even find them for the first 2 weeks until one of the elves noticed the strange habit.”
That’s when Claus did a google search for best turkey decoy. “I bought them $89 each and got free freight to boot!” he tells us. Nice work fat man. The global economy means those turkey decoys were made in China, shipped to South Dakota, and forwarded to the pole to deliver christmas presents worldwide.
“I almost bought the stuffers from Hazel Creek,” he told us, “but they can’t get wet and we usaully hit some rain. Gonna be another good ride this Christmas thanks to these turkey decoys.”
