I assume that the reindeer are not simply given to a family and left alone, but are accompanied by someone from the rental place, much like renting out ponies for children's parties. I still get an uneasy feeling about renting out animals the way one would rent a balloon ride, though.

This should be illegal. Animals are not ours to dispose of at our will like an in inanimate object or commodity.

I've seen reindeer in a small town display. They were in a very small metal cage and looked well, depressed. To do this to reindeer is crappy and not in the best interests of the animals.

I think it's a little sick to "rent out" live animals.
It's no different from renting out animals for petting zoos though...
