Rent a deer for the holidays

WHITE HOUSE, Tenn. (AP) - December 15, 2009


But these animals aren't for Santa in case he needs a fill-in for Rudolph.

Santa's Reindeer Tour has three females for hire.

Party planners in the Nashville area are able to rent out Comet, Snowflake and Holly for their events.

The animals are owned by Jill Swenson and her husband, David Pepper.

Swenson says the live reindeer add an element of magic to a party.

While the reindeer are friendly, they're not for petting.

Swenson tells The Tennessean newspaper they're "very sweet" but the antlers might poke someone.
