Default 'Rare' birth of live reindeer twins in Cairngorms

'Rare' birth of live reindeer twins in Cairngorms


Britain's only free-roaming herd of reindeer has seen the birth of its first live twins.

Previously, twins in The Cairngorms Reindeer Herd have been stillborn or died shortly after birth.

The owners of the herd said live twins were "extremely rare" and they remained hopeful, but realistic, about the calves' chances of survival.

They said there was only one other known case of live twins being born, which was in Finland in 2010.
