Santa Claus is known around the world as Father Christmas, St. Nicholas and Kris Kringle. If the Wyoming Game and Fish Department ever catches up with him, he might need another alias. For years, Santa has willfully disregarded a state law that prohibits anyone from raising or bringing reindeer in the Cowboy State without a permit.

In 2011, Murdoch's Ranch and Home Store in Laramie canceled an event featuring live reindeer after being informed of the law.

Although he hasn't been technically caught in the act, the Norad Santa Tracker has documented Kringle and his team of reindeer flying over the Cowboy State every Christmas Eve for nearly six decades.

If and when Santa is apprehended and brought to justice, he could face a fine and be forced to obtain a permit for Blitzen, Comet, Cupid, Dancer, Dasher, Donner, Prancer, and Vixen.
