    Grade 7 students at Langton Public school, Fenelon Falls, Ontario,
    think that the female caribou keep their antlers when they are carrying
    the calf to protect themselves and the baby from preditors. They drop
    the antlers after giving birth so they won't harm their baby while
    cleaning or nuzzling the calf.
