Reindeer, Finnmark, North Norway
The last remaining wild reindeer in Europe are found in portions of southern Norway.
Otherwise, most reindeer in Scandinavian countries are domesticated.
Reindeer have been herded for centuries by several Arctic and Subarctic people including the Sami and the Nenets (Though the Moose was used first). Roaming free on pasture grounds, they are raised for their meat, hides, antlers and, to a lesser extent, for milk and transportation.
