(BREAKING NEWS – Reindeer Barn) – One of Santa’s most cherished reindeer has been injured during a training exercise at the North Pole today. Vixen, a long-serving member of Santa’s A-team of reindeer, was injured doing what they call “short landings”.
“Vixen is under the care of several doctors at this time,” Elf Victor, head of Reindeer Operations at the North Pole. “She is feeling fine and getting rest while the doctors assess the extent of her injuries.”
Unofficially, the injury has affected one of Vixen’s front knees. An elf who spoke on condition of anonymity told us that Vixen came down hard on her left side and injured the knee when her foot went into a pot hole that was not visible due to snow.
It is not known yet how bad the damage to that knee is and whether or not Vixen can recover in time to fly with Santa on Christmas Eve.
When more details become available we will update you.
