Prosecutors Failed to Charge Foie Gras Company with Animal Cruelty

In spite of the abundant documented evidence of animal abuse on the part of foie gras producer Elevages Perigord, Crown Prosecutors in Quebec failed to charge them with animal cruelty. Undercover footage showed tearing off the heads of live ducks, kicking, throwing and punching ducks, bashing live ducks against walls and floors, suffocating and crushing live ducklings and slaughter of fully-conscious ducks.

Farm Sanctuary's President, Gene Baur, expressed his deep disappointment by saying, "The failure to prosecute represents a break down in the enforcement system and does not speak to the legality or the morality of practices at Elevages Perigord," ... "The callousness, brutality and egregious cruelty involved in producing foie gras is not supported by the majority of citizens in any country. The documentation demonstrates a clear attitude of cruelty which is endemic to the foie gras industry."

God’s animals are suffering unimaginable cruelty because of humanity’s greed and quest for profit. The callousness, hardness of heart and indifference toward animals are shockingly widespread. To God’s animals, humanity can be a curse or a blessing, and it’s up to each of us which path to take. As Christians, we are called to reflect God’s love, compassion and mercy, and participate in the reconciliation of God’s Creation.
