Eliminate cruel foie gras

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.

Eliminate cruel foie gras

Dear Chefs Mario Cassineri and Fabrice Poigin:

Your dinner on Feb. 29 featuring cruel and soon to be illegal foie gras--grossly enlarged livers from ducks force fed to the point where they are sick and dying--amounts to little more than animal cruelty as a publicity stunt.

The San Diego City Council has formally commended the more than 50 local restaurants that have removed this product of animal torture without waiting for the statewide ban to take effect July 1. Eight other city councils, included LA and SF, have done the same. Only about 20 restaurants in San Diego County still offer this cruel item.

Please rethink this dinner, and your use of this barbaric product. More information, including APRL's 2011 animal cruelty investigation of your supplier of foie gras, is posted at www.stopforcefeeding.com.

Sincerely,
