It was sad to read of local restaurants gleefully getting back on the cruelty bandwagon of foie gras.
The people who upset me the most were those who claim that sticking a long metal tube down an animal’s throat to force feed it is “not as cruel as it’s made out to be.” Really? Maybe these folks should try it on their family pet. Or, perhaps a family member.
This is sickeningly similar to those who claim that water boarding is not torture and yet they refuse to try it themselves.
Are we really so far above other animals as we like to think we are?
