Campaign Victory!

AARC has had its first victory in the anti Foie Gras campaign

An Auckland restaurant, The French Cafe, as agreed to remove foie gras from their menu after being given information on the cruel nature of this animal abusing industry. The campaign against foie gras will be moving on to other restaurants and delis serving and stocking this cruel product. Watch this space.

Foie gras is the diseased and fattened liver of ducks and geese, who have been intentionally force feed vast amounts of grain to deliberately cause their liver to swell to ten times their natural size. The ducks or geese are typically kept in large windowless sheds and suffer extreme pain during and after the force feeding process. After just a few weeks of force feeding the birds are in constant agony, unable to breathe properly and suffering from constant diarrhea. The birds are then slaughtered cruelly soon before they would die from sickness and disease.Auckland Animal Rights Collectiveanimalrightscollective[at]gmail.com
