Foie Gras– Delicacy or Cruelty???
After reading this mail regarding Le Foi Grass , I asked to myself to what level a human being can stoop for his own comforts and pleasures.
Let me tell you who don’t know anything about Le Foi Grass that it is a french delicacy that is made from the liver of duck or goose. Most of you would be thinking what the big difference in that, it is just a food product…….. but how many of you know that it is made by forcefully feeding the ducks or goose more food than they would normally eat in order to make their liver FATTY.
You all will be shocked when you’ll come to know about the process of force feeding CRUELTY on poor birds………..
Foie gras “FATTY LIVER” is produced by forcing a long metal pipe down the throats of ducks/geese and force-feeding them massive amounts of grain, resulting in their livers swelling to up to 12 times their normal size. This process of force feeding continues for one week until their lever gets swollen up to 10-12 times their normal size. Many of the birds dies during the process because of trauma and suffocation.
As per records the pre-slaughter mortality rate for foie gras production is up to 20 times the average rate on other duck factory farms.
More than 24 million ducks are killed each year for their flesh. Birds who are meant to swim, play, and forage are deprived of all these natural behaviors when they are crammed by the thousands into dark sheds with only wire, dirt, and feces to stand on. They have only a trickle of water for drinking, which means that the ducks can’t clean themselves, and disease and filth spread quickly.
I urge all people on this very forum to raise your voice to ban this kind of cruelty to animals who are also creation of the same god who has made us all.
