Reindeer on Colo. mall visit escapes
December 6, 2013
DILLON — A runaway reindeer broke free from Santa in Colorado Thursday, running away while the Big Man was inside a mall visiting with children.
KYSL in Summit County reports that the reindeer escape happened outside the La Riva Mall building in Dillon.
While Santa was inside the mall taking childhood wish lists, the reindeer jumped the enclosure it was in, leading the Dillon Police Department on a healthy jog through town.
The reindeer was located on the other side of a nearby reservoir. The Summit County Sheriff's Office brought another reindeer with them to lure the runaway reindeer back to them and into a trailer.
