Foie gras is a “luxury food” or delicacy. However, if you watched the video above, I imagine you’d rather not pay anything for it. Completely horrifying.
It is nice to see Kate Winslet joining the Pope, world-renowned chef Wolfgang Puck, PETA, and others trying to bring an end to the consumption and commercial sale of these tortured geese and ducks’ livers.
With the UK, Poland, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Italy, Israel, Norway, Luxembourg, Austria, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, South Africa, and the Czech Republic completely banning the production of foie gras, hopefully other countries will follow suit soon.
