The Animal Protection & Rescue League is warming up their vocal chords in preparation for a massive protest against Thomas Kellar’s three restaurants for serving foie gras.
In case you’ve missed it, foie gras is made by force-feeding geese until their livers swell to 3 or 4 times their normal size. So basically, it’s just really, really gross.
“As a veterinarian, I find foie gras to be a disease rather than a delicacy,” states Elliot Katz, DVM, President of IDA. “The liver’s function is to process toxins, and a liver in this grossly enlarged state from force feeding cannot function properly.”
The protest is set for Saturday, May 8, at Keller’s Per Se, Bouchon and French Laundry. More info can be found at HumaneSD.org.
