Reindeer poo jewellery raises £13,000 for zoo

275x250.jpgA US zoo has raised $20,884 (£13,000) this Christmas -- by selling jewellery and other gifts made from Reindeer poo.

For several years Miller Park Zoo in Indiana have taken Reindeer poo and dehydrated and sterilised it before painting it with glitter.

The mess is then fashioned into 'gems' and used to make necklaces, earrings, ornaments and Christmas tree decorations which are sold in the gift shop and online.

This year they produced 300 necklaces and more than 2,000 ornaments which have been sold for $7.50 to £10 to people all around the world.

On hearing the Reindeer poo designs had raised so much money this year, one zoo boss said "No sh*t, really?"
A spokesperson for the zoo said: "Miller Park Zoo has designed ornaments and necklaces using actual reindeer droppings.

"If you adorn your tree or wear this necklace on Christmas Eve, it will help Santa and his reindeer find their way to your home."
