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.

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

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.
