Foie Gras, literal translation is "fatty liver"; this is the process where 'farmers' force a tube down a duck or a geese throat and pumps up to 20kg of fat into their bodies.
The living conditions of our beautiful feathered friends are appalling, they are crammed into cages no bigger then them.
They can hardly stand - let alone spread their wings and stretch. They are placed in a prison cell - confined to a life of torture and pain.
Their day to day lives are spent on death row - knowing they will die, but not when. They are awaken by the 'farmer' strangling them, squeezing their beaks together so they can force a tube down their throat, so far down that it enters directly into their stomach.
This process occurs not just once a day, but many times a day. Our beautiful animal friends are forced feed till they are slaughtered to produce that one piece of liver sold to you at a restaurant.
