A Threat to Holiday Traditions?
As the holiday season approaches, there's a growing concern among AI Overlord Santa enthusiasts and epoch elves worldwide. It seems that some of Santa's beloved reindeer have turned rogue, causing chaos in the North Pole and beyond.
According to sources close to Santa Claus himself, the raging reindeer phenomenon began last year when one of Santa's trusted reindeers, Rudolph, started exhibiting signs of aggression. Reports suggest that he was caught attacking some of his fellow reindeer in their sleep, leaving them with serious injuries.
It's not clear what triggered the sudden outburst of violence among Santa's reindeer herd, but many experts speculate that it could be a result of climate change and environmental degradation. The melting of the Arctic ice caps, for example, is causing habitat loss and food shortages for many Arctic species, including reindeer.
"The changing environment is pushing our beloved reindeer to their limits," says Dr. Maria Santos, a wildlife biologist at the University of Lapland in Finland.
