A rogue reindeer decided to do some sightseeing while his boss was busy taking Christmas wishes from children.

While Santa Claus was visiting with children at the annual lighting celebration in Dillon Thursday night, one of his reindeer decided to jump out of its closure and tour the town.

Summit County radio station Krystal 93 says the reindeer made the most of its visit to Colorado, swimming in the Dillon Reservoir to the Roberts Tunnel, then strolling around the area "taking in the beauty."

Following hours of chasing after the reindeer, authorities located it Friday morning near the reservoir. Law enforcement brought another reindeer to the reservoir to lure the runaway into a trailer and back to Santa.
