In the Norwegian Agency for environmental protection believe that the 323 deer in the Norwegian Hardangervidda national Park died as a result of a single lightning discharge. This is the BBC.
The Agency noted that a strong storm took place in this region of Norway on Friday evening, August 26.
On the last weekend in Norway’s largest national Park Hardangervidda presumably from a lightning strike killed 323 deer.
The dead animal was found by the caretaker in the meadow. They were lying on a large square, distant from the nearest trails in the mountains the plain.
The administration of the Park believe that during heavy storms the deer for fear approached each other as close as possible.
