(Source) A lightning strike in Norway has killed more than 300 reindeer, according to reports from local media. A spokesman for the Norwegian Nature Inspectorate (NNI) told NTB, the Norwegian News Agency, that 323 reindeer were found dead on Friday in an area near Hardangervidda, in the southern part of the country. In a press release published Sunday, the Norwegian Environment Agency said that 70 of the dead reindeer were calves. Officials believe that the animals were killed by lightning during a heavy thunderstorm, marking what could be the deadliest lightning strike in history.
“We’ve heard about animals being struck by lightning and killed, but I don’t remember hearing about lightning killing animals on this scale before,” NNI spokesman Knut Nylend tells NTB. “We don’t know if it was one or more lighting strike; that would only be speculation.”
I know Scientists say they can explain this. That the reindeer huddle together out of fear and then all get struck by lightning at the exact same time. I get all of that. But the real reason this happened is an imminent alien strike. This shit ALWAYS starts with animals. First the animals get scared or mysteriously die, the dogs bark at nothing, the squirrels scurry away, the birds stop chirping THEN then the aliens attack. So go ahead, say this is some freak of nature, but don’t come running to me when the Aliens are at our front doorstep in a few weeks from now, ready to fuck our skulls, I’ll be a mile deep in Adam Morrison’s bunker chilling and talking about Kobe stories.
Nothing worse than dying with your head up your mom’s asshole. The reindeer equivalent of dying with a fucked up internet search history. So embarrassing.
