Ban the use of reindeer in Teesside's Christmas Parades

This petition had 2,666 supporters

Every year on the run up to Christmas Teesside holds two Reindeer Parades. 

One is held in Middlesbrough and one in Stockton, both are part of the annual Christmas events.

Reindeer are pack animals and very sensitive. Being shipped across the country to then be paraded around screaming crowds of children and inevitably poked and prodded, is very stressful for them. 

The cruelty of using such animals for entertainment can not continue. The events can continue without using reindeer. 

Let the reindeer live in peace in their natural environment. Don’t ship them out for your pleasure. It’s cruel and unneeded.
