No animals were harmed

A couple of weeks ago, I was down in Bristol, visiting Dad and as usual, we went to a nearby garden centre for our lunch. This time, the Christmas displays were up.
You can see Rudolph there, looking forward to his Christmas Eve duties.

These polar bears were moving, but careful inspection revealed that they were not real.

In fact, these were not the polar bears filmed for 
David Attenborough's programme and nor were any animals harmed in the production of these scenes.
Well, just in case you were wondering!

I admire your transparency, which is more than you can say for the BBC, otherwise I might well have been duped by your photos of polar bears in the wild.

I appreciate how difficult it would have been to tell the difference, SP. ;)
WendyCarole, the welfare of these animals must come first, of course!

I didn't realise that your dad's first name was Rudolph! Was he named after Rudolph Valentino?
