Reindeer to greet children at Highams Park Tesco

REINDEER getting ready to pull Santa's sleigh next month will first spend the weekend being greeted by excited children at a supermarket.

Kids can feed the reindeer, who will be attended by one of Father Christmas's elves to help shoppers get into the festive spirit when they visit Tesco in Larkshall Road, Highams Park, this weekend.

Store manager Neil Banks said: "There is no better way to start December than a visit from real reindeer.

"It is great to be able to offer customers an additional treat when they come into the store and we hope that the children have a fantastic day."

Will Tesco still sell their venison products in the form of steaks and burgers as an additional treat during this period?

This may seem like harmless fun but this silly gimmick is cruel to the reindeer as being outside a supermarket and transported around is far from their natural habitat and the crowds of people put the reindeer under severe stress – shame on Tesco.

You cannot beat a venison steak, rare, with juniper berries though?

Couldn't agree more Mark. This is animal abuse. I've emailed Tesco to complain.
