Foie Gras cruelty

Four Paws International provided footage and photographs of foie gras production in Hungary. The photographs, published in London’s Daily Mail newspaper, show goslings being shred alive.

The farmers justify this practice by stating that female baby geese don’t grow as quickly as do male goslings so, instead of being force fed for foie gras, shortly after hatching they are dropped into a giant funnel that leads to the blades which slice them into feed for other animals.

France and Hungary are the world's second largest foie gras producers in the world. The European Union wants force-feeding to be prohibited within 15 years. Even the Pope, Benedict XVI, has denounced the practice as being in violation of Biblical principles.
