Is it just me or are live reindeer at shopping centres a depressing sight? These poor creatures are wheeled out as a Christmas 'feature' to spend the day in a small pen circled by people. At the weekend two were at my local outlet store on a bare brick floor all day. Their food and water was at the edge of the pen and they were lying down in the centre looking totally despondent. I feel the Santas helper thing has just gone too far. These are real animals and need to be treated with a bit more consideration and not as Christmas 'decorations'. Whats next live robins in cages?
But maybe this is just me?

No, it's not just you. But I haven't seen scenes like that where I live.
