awesome picture but reindeer looks weak and feeble.

No thank you. I despise such "attractions". Imagine how many times that reindeer have to pull that Sled around every day? Humiliating Wild Animals like these at the expense of entertain Humans? Let the poor animal go back to his natural habitat. Heartbreaking as it is, this is nothing but Animal Cruelty, period.

Really not the best pic to start a cold, rainy Saturday. Feel so sad for the reindeer.

Poor reindeer. Agree with BlueWitch that this is complete animal cruelty.

....at the entrance to Hilton Niseko Village in Hokkaido.

Hilton? By the looks of that shack in the background, Hilton hotels have really let things go lately.

Can you imagine what Santa Claus's reindeers go through?

Pretty tonakai there in Hokkaido! I thought it was a picture of Norway, where the Laplanders really love their reindeer!

If you let that reindeer free it will be dead in a week. Look at it!
