This time of the year the slaughtering season starts for the reindeer herders. And it last till some time into the new year. I went to the mountains a couple of days ago to see when the heards are gathered, and sorted. And some calves that was not marked during summer, got their earmarks now. I am not finished with these pictures, but here is a few. And some more on this link. As before these are from the South Sámi groups that have their reindeers in the central parts of Norway. The majority of the Sámi people lives up north, especially in Finnmark.
