TOKYO, Japan -

Toys may not be the only thing Santa's reindeer are delivering this holiday season. According to a press release from Domino's Pizza in Japan, the company is having their employees train reindeer to deliver pizza to customers. 

Customers would be able to track their orders through a GPS app on their smartphones, with a cartoon reindeer showing the location of the delivery. 

A.V. Club states that the company says they are expecting severe cold weather conditions in northern Japan as a result of La Nina, and believe that reindeer could help make sure that pizzas are delivered even during harsh snowfall. 

No word on whether or not Domino's plans to expand their reindeer delivery service to the U.S. for the holidays.

    SPOKANE, Wash. George Simpkins packed his bags and moved from Ohio to Spokane to start a new job.
