Gilles Arsenault with his potato, which he thinks looks like a reindeer.

SUMMERSIDE — It was a rather unusual find.

Gilles Arsenault of Summerside was working recently grading potatoes when, off one of the trucks, came a potato like nothing he had ever seen before.

The spud, which he says looks like a reindeer, has a small, pointed front with smaller potatoes attached that looked liked ears and a longer potato attached.

Arsenault, who has worked grading potatoes for five years, said he has never seen anything like it before.

He plans to keep the potato until it starts to sprout. After that, it will become supper.

What do you think it looks like?
