Action Alert: Please Help End Foie Gras Production

The Humane Society International has launched a petition to the Chinese Premier asking him to stop plans for a foie gras production facility.

Plans have been revealed for an industrial-sized foie gras production facility, to house millions of geese, in China.

The production of foie gras involves force-feeding ducks and geese by thrusting a long pipe down their throats and pumping an unnatural quantity of food directly into their stomachs.  The practice of force feeding is prohibited in much of Europe (including the United Kingdom, Germany, Denmark, Italy, and Poland) as well as Argentina, Israel, and in the U.S. state of California.
