We all know the story of Rudolph and how the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names.

Well, a real-life version is playing out in the Canadian town of Fort Nelson – and it’s going a lot farther than just name-calling.

A Rudolph-themed decoration set up by a local resident is getting attacked by actual deer – who headbutt and stomp it, thinking it’s real.

Arlene Chmelyk says that young bucks see the decoration – which is made out of a deer-shaped archery target – as competition for females.

She just glues poor Rudolph back together and lets the reindeer games continue.
