IT is shocking and cruel exploitation of innocent wild animals for reindeer to be put on show for hours at Bents Garden Centre.

Bents is shamelessly promoting this to be a magical experience not to be missed.

It is common knowledge these days that wild animals should be treated with due respect and not be put through unnecessary pain and suffering.

The circus industry and other live entertainment has disappeared largely in civilized nations.

Why should a leading civilized country like England allow such animal exploitation?
