In Norway’s largest national Park Hardangervidda presumably from a lightning strike killed 323 deer. About it reports The Local Europe.
The dead animal was found by the caretaker in a clearing in the Park last weekend. 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.
“We heard about that was struck by lightning and killed animals, but I don’t remember that before a lightning strike killed animals at this scale. We don’t know whether it was one or more lightning while there is only speculation,” – said the representative of the Park the Whip Nuland.
At the scene are eight employees of the Park. They collect the remains of animals which will give the veterinary Institute to conduct the study. There is need to establish the cause of death of deer.
