Alaska's popular reindeer, Star, dies in owner's arms
She spent final days eating favourite treats, such as grapes and Mini-Wheats
A popular reindeer that could be seen walking the streets of downtown Anchorage has died at age 15.
KTVA-TV reports that Star the reindeer died on Saturday.
A note posted on her pen by owner Albert Whitehead says Star died in his arms.
Whitehead took Star on a short walk, and she collapsed after returning home.
Whitehead says she spent her last days hanging out and eating her favourite treats, such as grapes and Mini-Wheats.
Star was an Anchorage staple for both local residents and tourists.
She was the sixth of a line of local pet reindeer, all females named Star, going back more than 50 years.
