Animal rights activists have tried to shut down the fois gras business in many paces around the world because it allegedly abuses ducks and geese to force feed them, the purpose of which is to fatten up their livers, creating the richness of the fois gras product. Of course, the force feeding is not the true issue for animal rights/liberationists. It is the killing of the birds. But hey, any port in a storm.
Needless to say, the liberationists are unassuaged by “ethical” fois gras.
