Hardangervidda, the largest high mountain plateau in northern Europe.So, the syllable accent in the word "Hardangervidda" is on the "danger" part of the name? :)

323 dead reindeer. I'm just glad I'm not a reindeer herder in the high mountain plateaus of Norway. :(

I would imagine that the carcasses are still usable.

Reindeer meat anyone?

These are wild animals. No herders, only hunters around.

G-CPTN. Those carcases are looking to be a little bloated already.

No diseases found in the animals, they will be left where they are for natural recycling. Will make many foxes, wolverine, birds of prey and small carnivores happy.
