THE PAIN AND SUFFERING OF FOIE GRAS
Foie gras, French for "fatty liver," is made from the grotesquely enlarged
livers of male ducks and geese.
The birds are kept in tiny wire cages or packed into sheds. Pipes are
repeatedly shoved down the birds' throats, and up to 4 pounds of grain and
fat are pumped into their stomachs two or three times every day. The pipes
puncture many birds' throats, sometimes causing the animals to bleed to
death. This cruel procedure causes the birds' livers to become diseased and
swell to up to 10 times their normal size. Many birds become too sick to
stand up. The birds who survive the force-feeding are killed, and their
livers are sold for foie gras.
