A reindeer that has just been de-horned by a Nenets herder in Naryan-Mar. The Nenets are the original inhabitants in the Russian Arctic but have been displaced by both Soviet-era collectivisation and modern gas and oil exploration. Reindeer provide the Nenets with food, shelter and clothing. They sell reindeer meat to sausage factories and the antlers to China for use as traditional medicine. /Felix Features
