The folks at Miller Park Zoo in downstate Bloomington are making and selling Christmas ornaments out of droppings from reindeer. No joke.
Here's how they are made. First, the deer poop of course, and then their dung is dried - then clear-coated and either painted or rolled in glitter. The end result is called Magical Reindeer Gem Ornaments. They're sold in the zoo's gift shop for $5, and each comes with a label of authenticity.
