On the road “Salekhard-Aksarka” the car of the head of Priuralskiy district, Ivan Sakal, literally “bumped” into the live traffic jam. Several hundred reindeer were going lazily along the road. The driver slowed down and carefully followed the animals, not frightening them with sounds of the car horn.
As it should be noted, “reindeer traffic jams” are not rare in Yamal. This time the reindeer apparently started moving north. Drivers often see them on winter roads or in their surroundings, and sometimes reindeer accompany cars like dolphins in the sea accompany ships.
