In case of reindeer roadkill

WHAT TO DO

  1. Give first aid to injured people and call Finland's emergency number 112.
  2. Prevent additional damages and place the emergency warning triangle on the road at least 100 metres from the car to warn others.
  3. Put down the injured reindeer or find a person who will do it for you. 
  4. Move the animal's body to the side of the road and mark it clearly. Do not take it with you.

INFORM

  1. Call 112 even if you only slightly hit a reindeer. Even if the reindeer moves on, it is likely hurt. Do not leave the animal to suffer!
  2. Inform your insurance company in case there have been damages to persons, cars or other property.
