"I Am Star the Reindeer"

When people see a reindeer walking around downtown Anchorage, lots of questions come to mind. 

"What is a reindeer doing in a wine shop?" for example.

Albert Whitehead, the caretaker of Star the Reindeer, never gets tired of telling the story to each passerby he meets. For him "Star #6" is a small piece of a long history of reindeer living at the corner of 10th and I in Anchorage.
