Rudolf V's the F16

Following on from the Irish government introducing a tax on toys a few months before Christmas, the Irish Examiner is reporting that the Danish government have taken things a step further and killed Rudolf with fighter jets.

The animal, named Rudolf, was grazing peacefully at the central Denmark farm of Olavi Nikkanoff when the screaming F-16 jets passed overhead at low altitude in February.

The reindeer collapsed and died, leaving Nikkanoff with the prospect of only one animal pulling his sleigh next Christmas.

Now if only they could track the Easter Bunny to his underground lair...
