The inspection in Lakselv revealed three of them were in the back seat and the other two in the boot. Reports reveal the animals had been put in the vehicle to be transported the 100 kilometres from Karasjok to Børselv.

The driver alleged he had checked with the Food Safety Authority (Mattilsynet), responsible for the transport of animals in Norway, prior to the journey. .

Officials are now planning to increase the number of cars they inspect. Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA/Statens vegvesen) inspector Frank Ove Eidem said reindeer are not the only unusual thing to be discovered.

“There is no limit to what people come up with on the roads. I have ceased to be surprised. There seems to be all types of violations,” he told VG.
