Eliminate cruel foie gras

    1. Petition by

      Animal Protection and Rescue League

BICE restaurant is holding a dinner on Feb. 29 featuring cruel and soon to be illegal foie gras--grossly enlarged liver from ducks force fed massive quantities of food to the point where they are sick and dying. (Photo is from APRL's 2011 animal cruelty investigation of Hudson Valley Foie Gras).

The San Diego City Council has passed a resolution commending restaurants for removing this product of animal torture without waiting for the statewide ban to take effect July 1, 2012. Eight other city councils, including Los Angeles and San Francisco, have done the same. Over 50 restaurants in San Diego have removed foie gras, and only about 20 still serve it.

The Animal Protection and Rescue League will be holding a protest at BICE (425 Island Ave. 92101) at 6:30pm on Feb. 29 with large graphic banners depicting the cruelty the organization has documented inside the only three U.S. foie gras farms.

Please sign the petition urging BICE to rethink this dinner and its use of this barbaric product!

More information and a newly released video is posted at www.stopforcefeeding.com.

      To those who insist on producing, selling, serving or consuming DISEASED FATTY LIVER aka Foie Gras, please reconsider. This product is inhumanely harvested from once healthy, innocent ducklings & goslings deliberately imprisoned, unable to even move inside tiny cages, forced to squat 24/7 in their own feces, while being deliberately inflicted with liver disease through excessive & cruel forcefeedings 3x every day. If this isn't hellish enough, they are also forced to endure the cruelty of having a long cold metal tube shoved down their throats often perforating their esophagus, causing them to choke, vomit or even to die a slow & painful death. The entire purpose is to increase the size of a normal healthy liver to a diseased one 10x its size in the space of a month, before it is cut out of the semi conscious birds' sickened bodies. So if you continue to support this heinous industry, just remember that disease begets disease and you have a choice to say NO. The birds never did.
