Escaped Reindeer Found Hiding Under Elf House

LAKELAND, Fla. -- A reindeer escaped from a nativity scene in Lakeland, but was later caught hiding under an elf house, police said Tuesday.
While the story sounds like a Christmas tale, police say it's true. A caller to police early Tuesday morning said the reindeer had escaped from the nativity scene at Highland Park Church of the Nazarene on Lake Highlands Road.Church personnel responded to the area where the reindeer, appropriately named Rudy (short for Rudolph, of course), was seen running loose. They chased the deer around the property before finding Rudy hiding under the "elf house," police said.Rudy, who was unharmed, is now in the care of his owner and being kept at his house to prevent another escape from his enclosure on the church property. Police said Rudy is small in stature and, while he looks like a baby deer, he is actually 3 years old.

I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

Well, the imagery is a hoot, but that poor little reindeer was probably scared and cold. I wonder if his nose began to glow! I hope he gets to stay inside for the rest of the winter.
Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.
