Wild mountain reindeer live in vast open spaces above the treeline in Norway, and their main antipredator strategies are grouping into large herds, and fleeing. Reindeer are very sensitive to anthropogenic disturbance, and the sight of a snow mobiles, a snowkyter, or just a few individuals on skis can be enough to trigger flight. Therefore, human disturbance has to be strictly regulated in reindeer areas. Photo: wild reindeer.
