Discount supermarket Lidl has come under fire for selling reindeer steaks in the run-up to Christmas.
Animal rights campaigners have criticised Lidl for selling reindeer that are, according to Uppsala University in Sweden, often herded using non-traditional techniques such as snowmobiles and motorbikes which causes the animals distress and muscle wastage.
"The idea of ‘Rudolph’ being slaughtered and sliced into steaks for a novelty Christmas dinner is revolting," said a spokesperson for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. "Christmas is supposed to remind us of peace and goodwill - and the rest of the animal kingdom could do with a taste of it, rather than being tasted."
