I saw this beautiful beast penned on the pavement in Chichester with a long queue of children waiting to pet him and have their photograph taken with him. Sorry but he looked hangdog to me. Not a very merry Christmas time for reindeer if they are exploited in this way. Brought to a strange country with no snow, hard pavements and hundreds of people staring at them. Unable to forage for food and missing the herd. If we don't join the queue and don't pay hopefully it won't be worth anyone's while to bring reindeer over to England next Christmas.
