Cruelty in the Animal
Industry:
Living creatures being treated as mass-producing machines
Ducks and Geese
    Force-Feeding (Foie Gras)
    The "delicacy" known as foie gras is one of the most sickening examples of cruelty promoted as
    "luxury." Workers shove pipes down the birds' throats two or three times a day and pump
    enormous quantities of grain and fat into the animals' stomachs so that the birds' livers will
    become diseased and bloated. The birds are then killed, and their livers are sold as foie gras to
    diners in fancy restaurants.

    Force-feeding ducks and geese to produce foie gras is so cruel that Governor Arnold
    Schwarzenegger recently signed legislation outlawing the production and sale of foie gras in
    California beginning in 2012, and Chicago banned the product's sale in 2006. Production of this
    "delicacy of despair" has also been banned in Israel, Germany, Italy, and the United Kingdom.

    When workers in the foie gras industry force-feed ducks and geese, the pipes sometimes
    puncture birds' throats, causing them to bleed to death or suffer painful wounds.

This bird (above), a victim of force-feeding by the foie
gras industry, choked to death on his own vomit.
In foie gras factory farms, workers are pushed to
force-feed birds as quickly as possible. This bird's
beak was likely broken when a pipe was shoved down
his throat.
