The bodies of more than 300 wild reindeer were found scattered across a small area in central Norway.
And officials believe they were all killed in a single lightning storm.
A spokesman for the Norwegian Nature Inspectorate told local media he discovered the carcasses during a routine inspection of a remote hunting area last week.
