KUSA - Someone didn't want to be Santa's little helper. On Thursday, one of Kris Kringles's reindeer made a mad dash for a reservoir during Dillion's annual lighting ceremony.
According to radio station Krystal 93, the reindeer plotted its escape while Santa was inside visiting with children and going over Christmas wishlists.
The reindeer managed to jump the enclosure and made its way through town, eventually swimming across Dillon Reservoir to the Roberts Tunnel.
The reindeer was eventually found on other side of a nearby reservoir.
The Summit County Sheriff's Office used a fellow reindeer to lure the runaway back to Santa.
