This is a scene that the farmers don’t want the public to see; though in this case, the farmer was bragging about how he force-feeds the geese in the traditional method. To keep the goose still during this painful process, the goose was placed in a box on which the man sat. He then grabbed the neck of the goose and forced a large feeding tube down his throat.
This is a way of keeping ducks confined so that they can be systematically tortured for 28 days while being force-fed three to four times a day. History says that foie gras was invented by the Egyptians, but we believe it’s from Satan!
In this photo it is easier to see how the sadistic farmer restrains the goose in a holding box and forces the long force-feeding tube down the goose’s throat. Only human beings seem capable of such depravity.
This duck had its neck punctured by having the feeding tube brutally forced down his throat. The wound was left untreated and because the duck was confined, flies laid their eggs in the wound and maggots began eating the duck alive. Put a stop to this sadistic practice. Don’t buy or eat foie gras and boycott any restaurant that serves it.
This is another photo of a goose being brutally force-fed. We believe that there has to be something morally and spiritually wrong with a person who is so indifferent to the pain and suffering they inflict, that they continue to do it day after day.
In this photo we can see how immense the feeding tube is compared to the the size of the bird’s mouth and throat. Think of how this force-feeding would feel to us. Think of how uncomfortable it feels when we overeat. Then imagine how it would feel to have even more food forced down our throats. If we can imagine this, then we will begin to understand the pain and suffering that is inflicted upon ducks and geese.
This is a semi-automatic force-feeding operation. By raising and lowering the handle, a measured amount of food is forced into the stomach of the goose. This machine just makes it easier for some humans to torture more ducks and geese. And, every person who eats foie gras is just as “guilty” of the torture of these defenseless ducks and geese as if they personally rammed the food down their throats.
Investigators found that many of the ducks at Sonoma Foie Gras suffer from gaping, infected wounds on their behinds. Don’t support this atrociously cruel industry. Speak out against it.
A victim of forced-feeding, this duck choked to death on his own vomit. He now lies dead in a pen. This was not an accident. This tragedy was set in motion by the torturer-farmers in this industry who have a depraved indifference to life. If they did something like this to a human being, they would be guilty of second degree murder. In our opinion, they are still guilty of murder.
This is a photo of dead ducks in a trash can. They died for human greed and gluttony. Remember, everyone who eats an animal product is responsible for the animals’ torture and death, because they paid to have it done.
