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!
