Danish Air Force Kills Reindeer
Danish Air Force pilots, trying out their spanking new F-16s, screamed over the farm of Olavi Nikkanoff at an altitude low enough to induce heart failure in Nikkanoff's reindeer, Rudolf.
After checking flight data and vet reports, the Air Force concluded that they did indeed cause Rudolf's death. They paid Olavi $5000 in compensation.
Alas, poor Rudolf, we hardly knew ye.
