It’s never good when a wild animal makes its way onto a road at night, neither for the animal or drivers. In Finland, it’s common for reindeer to cross the road and end up killed by a car.

Looking for a solution to this problem, The Finnish Reindeer Herder’s Association have begun painting the antlers of deer with a special reflective glow-in-the-dark paint that shines bright when headlights are shone on it. For animals without antlers, like dogs and horses, the paint is safe enough to be sprayed on their fur.

Check out the video below to see how this method is proving to be a boon for wildlife and drivers alike.
