FOIS GRAS - should be served with a pipe down the throat


Recommended Posts





I have to admit complete ignorance to foie gras prior to this recent removal of the ban. I think this is an easy case of animal cruelty for no good reason if I ever heard of one. If these stories are accurate, dog fighting is better than this, IMO. :-(


Indeed, specially since there are fake ones (I know, I like 'em) that are actually pretty damn good, and *VERY* good quality and taste, that are made from other parts of the animal, hence removing the need for this cruel treatment of the animal.

This stuff looks and tastes like cat food any way. I don't see how it's cruel. The goose doesn't feel any pain. Take a look a a diagram of a goose's throat sometime and you'll see why.


As far as I understand it, the throat isn't the problem, the stomach and liver are, and the force-feeding isn't very pleasant, to say the least.

I've watched a documentary about it on TV.

It's a horrible cruelty definitely.

I don't like FOIS GRAS and the way it's made make me really sick... I hate cruelty with animals specially when it involves human interests.

It's disgusting. I can't understand where are the animal protection bodies which were supposed to eliminate this type of routine.
