URGENT: Pipes RAMMED Down Birds’ Throats!

Workers on foie gras farms shove tubes down birds’ throats and pump multiple pounds of fat and grain into the birds’ stomachs every day. This causes the birds’ livers to become painfully diseased and to swell to up to 10 times their normal size. In some cases, the birds’ organs rupture.

Investigations at foie gras farms across the U.S. and Europe have revealed sick, dying, and dead animals—some with holes in their necks from injuries sustained during force-feeding. Those who survive the force-feeding are violently killed, and their bloated livers are sold to consumers as foie gras.

California banned the sale of foie gras, but one restaurant is still trying to profit off of this cruelty and has even persuaded the clothing company Orisue to sponsor an event this Saturday. Contestants at the Playground restaurant will compete by shoving foie gras-topped hamburgers, called “Shut the Duck Up Burgers,” into their mouths in an eating contest.

Urge Orisue NOT to sponsor this heartless and illegal event immediately.





Petition Text

I am writing to respectfully urge you to withdraw Orisue’s sponsorship of the August 11 event at the Playground restaurant, in which the diseased livers of painfully force-fed birds will be served as part of a public spectacle, glorifying animal abuse. Investigations at foie gras farms across the U.S. and Europe have revealed sick, dying, and dead animals–some with holes in their necks from injuries sustained during force-feeding.

Not only is foie gras cruelly produced, it is also illegal in California. To promote foie gras in California is to thumb your nose at an animal protection law passed by the representatives of the citizens of California.

if they can consider this form of
torture, an

    The evilness of some humans never ceases to amaze me…..WHY do they have to keep exploiting our lesser beings……it’s the 21st century for goodness sake and we niether need to wear real fur OR eat foods that have caused extreme pain and fear to innocent animals (there has never been such a large choice of foods for us, so WHY feel the need to eat these vile so-called delicacies (whoever does should choke on them!!) Let’s please start having REAL compassion for ALL animals….Domestic, Farm AND Wildlife.
