Letters: Santa could use our urban deer

Our deer are ideal reindeer replacements for the world Santa now has to deal with.

As we sat down to help our son write out his letter to Santa this year, we discussed the fact that Santa’s reindeer must be getting close to retirement. It was obvious — this is the solution to our deer problem! Santa can recruit sleigh-pulling replacements from our large selection of urban deer.

Our deer are ideal reindeer replacements for the world Santa now has to deal with. They are lighter and have a good strength-to-weight ratio.

They are smaller, excellent at navigating urban centres and landing on smaller rooftops.

They are fit — who hasn’t seen them leaping tall fences in a single bound. They are fearless: dogs, people, and cars don’t phase them.

They are self-sufficient; the elves won’t have to feed them since they will browse the garbage and garden.

Santa, when you come through town today, take a look at our deer. Remember, Dasher doesn’t have much dash left in him and Donner is losing his thunder.

Happy Holidays Invermere!
