Bistro Bobette: Remove cruel foie gras from your menu

    1. Petition by

      Richmond Friends of Animals

Richmond Friends of Animals has been urging the owners of Bistro Bobette in downtown Richmond, Virginia, to remove cruel foie gras from their menu for several years. Though the restaurant has updated its name since the campaign began, it remains behind the times in terms of compassion. In the production of foie gras (French for "fatty liver"), geese and ducks are crippled and their organs often rupture due to being force-fed several times a day to make their livers grow up to 10 times the normal size. Investigations have even revealed barrels full of dead ducks who were unable to withstand the effects of force feeding.

Please join Richmond Friends of Animals in urging Bistro Bobette to ditch cruelty and remove foie gras from its menu. Please pledge not to eat there until they make this compassionate decision.

      It is cruel and unnecessary. Must you torture animals live? Stop consuming foie gras.

      This is torture to this innocent animals and it has to stop. No one should have to suffer this way just so that someone can have a taste sensation for a couple of minutes.
