Foie gras, an inhumane product made by cruelly enlarging duck or goose livers, is a food delicacy in many countries. The controversial entree was gaining popularity in India, until the country introduced a ban on foie gras imports. Applaud this ban, which will halt the popularity of this cruel delicacy
Welcome pack with foie gras for Euro Parlementariërs is bad fallen.
A welcome gift with foie gras that MEPs were on their first visit to Strasbourg this week's bad cases Party for the Animals MEP Anja Hazekamp.
The foie gras was the MEPs package offered by the lobbying organization Campaign for European democracy, "which wants to maintain Strasbourg.
As a meeting place of the European Parliament Include the City of Strasbourg, Strasbourg Air France KLM and hospitality sponsored the inhumane gift.
Hazekamp calls it a welcome gift 'inappropriate'. "The production of fatty goose and duck liver is associated with severe cruelty to animals. The birds are force-fed several times a day, which is extremely stressful and painful. Therefore, force-feeding banned in most European countries. It meets us at the chest that a city promotes itself on the backs of animals. We were already at the monthly up-and-down traveling circus to Strasbourg foie gras and this package makes it no less, "said the PvdD MEP.
Hazekamp has fourteen MEPs Thursday afternoon on behalf of the animal-unfriendly packets given back to the Mayor of Strasbourg.

Obtained 3 signatures on this disgusting practice!!!!
Have caught up with all petitions. It's so heartbreaking to know how Little we can do to help These poor creatures. We've just been in France again and I could race around the Restaurants cheerfully murdering (or worse) the bastards who sit there eating fatty liver and thinking the poor animals were just put in this world to feed their fat stomachs.
Thanks Monika !
Actually I'd really enjoy hearing the big bang if all these murderous foie gras eaters would spontaneously combust at the same time. Just imagine the mess.
Thanks for the supportive remarks. Was really beginning to wonder when I'd get banned from commenting. Mind you, I'd find it very hard to put the reigns on my big blabbermouth where animals are concerned.
I would love for the whole diabolical lot of foie gras eaters to choke to death slowly and painfully.
Signed, thanks Monika.

No Jan, not at all noticeable. But not to worry, I have Zero toleration days every day where animal cruelty is concerned. Actually I'm waiting for someone to ban me from commenting. But we will persevere - one way or another. And your idea with the pipe and the entrails meets my wholehearted approval. Just imagining it is making my day a Little brighter.
Signed. Yes - agree wholeheartedly. Tie them up, stick a pipe down their throats and force feed them, preferably with their own entrails.
Not so you would notice but I am having a zero toleration day.

Okay, so I have been giving this much thought and my viewpoint is that these people need to be rounded up, tied up and this disgusting stuff shoved down their throats until they choke or vomit - let them feel the horrific and unnecessary suffering these poor birds feel so that savage sub humans can gorge themselves on it at the horrendously cruel expense of an animal.
Proven to be cruel and clearly illegal – yet the European Commission continues to take no action.
Enough is enough. For years the Commission has been provided with a wealth of scientific evidence, detailed briefings and formal complaints on the illegality of foie gras production.

There are a lot of people with disgusting eating habits. I would love to stick that pipe down that force-feeder's throat and leave it there.
Anyone who eats foie gras should be force fed it just like the ducks so they can enjoy the whole experience. Any restaurant ready to offer this - diners could pay extra!

The foie gras is made for the liver of male ducks and geese. The problem is that the birds are force fed and are received inhumane treatment. They are kept in small wire cages while being packed into sheds. They are often forced-fed and constantly having pipes introduced in their throats
all up to date ~ thank you
Actually Laura, I don't find it particularly challenging not to eat These dishes. We live half the year in France and have a house in Frejus, but all our friends totally understand that I refuse to eat foie gras or frogs legs because of the cruelty. As a matter of fact they None of them will order These Foods when I'm around. I find that even if something basically tastes good the thought of the animal suffering puts me off it completely.
I have the same Problem with lobster etc. Knowing that they are taped up and kept alive for Ages while suffering severely from immobility and simple fear is enough to put me off eating These dishes, although I must admit that the taste is good.
All finished. Thanks for sharing. It's going to be challenging to refuse this dish when I am in France this summer.
How could anyone eat that stuff
Yes it really is a miracle expecially that Japanese have cancelled this meal. All we Need now is for some French to get in the act and I'll start believing in virgin birth
That's a miracle.
Already did these. Thanks for sharing. Nasty dish!
Already did these. Thanks for sharing.
A Japanese convenience chain has cancelled the release of a ready-to-eat foie gras meal, in response to customer complaints. Commend the chain for keeping current with advancing animal welfare standards.
Yes Monika, and they try to make it a CULTURAL HERITAGE !!
Signed everything. Trouble is very particularly in France. The French are so centred around their stomachs that they feel it's an honour for the poor animals to sufer so that they can have a good meal. I know that there are a lot of French who don't feel that way, but still they're a small percentage. And it's no use expecting Hollande to Change his attitude in the matter:
a) he's too busy having affairs with younger women and
b) he's a gluton himself.
After you ever seen the way foie gras is produced in Bulgaria, though? That beats all of what we know in the way of animal cruelty.
Human eating habits are the most disgusting.
Signed. Thank you Monika x
The production of foie gras is a cruel and barbaric practice that involves the forced feeding of ducks in order to give them abnormally large and fatty livers. During this process the ducks’ stomachs undergo so much expansion that they become nearly immobile. Please urge Oregon legislators to ban this cruel food.

The critic and the restaurants obviously are not up to much of a standard of cuisine. Serving and enjoying foie gras is indicative of a lack of imagination and a diseased palette.
Thanks Monika, signed.
Very pleased to see the petition to ban foie gras. In my opinion those who indulge their appetites for diseased livers have diseased brains. It is also extremely hypocritical for countries like the UK and numerous others to ban the production of foie gras but still allow it to be imported and sold in shops and restaurants. No self respecting chef should be serving such a horrendous concoction of abuse and cruelty. If the chef cannot make an alternative then what standard is the rest of the food?

Excusez-moi, Monsieur le Président, I'm with the Californians on this. This cruel force-feeding of ducks and geese should be outlawed worldwide, practices like this have no place in any modern, civilised society.
I found an interesting talk about a "goose whisperer". It's a bit long but when (if) you have a little spare time.
p.s. click the CC button for the subtitles.
Thank you, dear Lenicka for the article.

Wrong tone adopted by speaking cynically on tortuous force-feeding of geese and ducks
Comments by French president Hollande against Californian ban on foie gras are unacceptable
The comments made by French president Francois Hollande about the Californian ban on foie gras are simply unacceptable. The president announced that he would fight for France’s right to export Foie Gras, which is produced by the painful force-feeding of millions of geese and ducks, and that he would argue for France’s right under free trade treaties to export a “good product” which “respects health norms and animal comfort”. In the meantime, he added, he would “bombard” US political leaders with gifts of foie gras: “I wouldn’t want the Americans to be deprived of it”, he said jokingly.

To produce "foie gras" (which literally means "fatty liver"), workers ram pipes down male ducks' or geese's throats two or three times daily and pump as much as 4 pounds of grain and fat into the animals' stomachs, causing their livers to bloat to up to 10 times their normal size. Many birds have difficulty standing because of their engorged livers, and they may tear out their own feathers and cannibalize each other out of stress.
The birds are kept in tiny wire cages or packed into sheds. On some farms, a single worker may be expected to force-feed 500 birds three times each day. Because of this rush, animals are often treated roughly and left injured and suffering.
