Hirvas Salmi, FINLAND. A herd of reindeer circle in a tight pack after being released into the corral, herdsmen then begin the difficult process of finding their own reindeer grabbing them by the antlers. 90% of the reindeer are female and many males are to be castrated and have their antlers sawed off to guard against fights for females during the mating season.
