UK supermarket Lidl has been under fire for stocking reindeer meat on the run up to Christmas.
The store has attracted a great deal of criticism and has been accused of "destroying the magic of Christmas" by stocking the controversial product, further criticism has also been levelled at the cruel methods used to herd the animals.
A discount supermarket chain has been accused of destroying the magic of Christmas after putting reindeer steaks on its shelves. Lidl, which has more than 500 shops in Britain, is the first multiple grocery retailer in the UK to introduce reindeer meat in the run-up to the festive season.

Magic of christmas being destroyed from the sell of deer meat? what a bunch of idiot people,The meaning of Christmas was lost a long time ago,With all this stupid crap the way people think.Give me a deer steak anyday Ill eat a ton of it.Put Rudolfs hing quarter on the grill and make it medium rare.Does any one of you so called U.M. members know the true meaning of Christmas?I bet you do only some have chosen to forget.Who cares about how much deer meat is eaten during this time of year.Christmas is about the Baby Jesus and how he came to be,Its his birthday and it should be celebrated as such,...

It's a great way to scare good manners into your children. "Kids, Santa knows when you're naughty or nice. If you're naughty, you'll end up like those poor reindeers." LOL! Funny,but crazy at the same time.Hey Are those Reindeer steaks ready yet?

Reindeer steaks are good but the elf chops are better. if you eat elf meat is it considered cannibalism, because they're sorta kinda people too? or are they, like, a different species so it's ok? i'm so confused about the rules where that's concerned. my rule is, i don't eat meat that eats meat.

If on the package it said something like Fresh Reindeer steaks from Santa to you then yeah I would see a problem. However there isn't, meats such as reindeer have been eaten for centuries.
