A Christmas wish from Rudolph…for his captive reindeer friends

Posted on the 5th November 2018

Animal Aid is calling on event organisers to halt the use of live captive reindeer in festive events.

Our extensive investigations at UK reindeer farms have uncovered some shocking suffering. This includes:
  • Deliberate animal abuse including reindeer being shouted at and kicked
  • Poorly-looking reindeer with raw, exposed skin, diarrhoea and skeletal abnormalities
  • Animals displayed for hours on end under bright lights with significant noise, with nowhere to retreat to. This sort of environment is hugely stressful for these gentle creatures.

Please speak out for reindeer by ordering a free ‘Antler Action Pack’ today! It’s filled with lots of inspiration and resources to help you spread the word.
