Actor, Ricky Gervais is a great friend to animals. He often posts on his popular social media accounts about various animal charities and issues. His latest post encourages his Facebook and Twitter fans to ban foie gras.

Foie gras is a controversial “delicacy” that is the product of extreme suffering for ducks. The process of producing foie gras (fatty duck liver) requires the confinement of ducks in very cramped crates (where they often cannot turn around or even spread their wings) and force-feeding them huge amounts of food (typically corn) in order to fatten them up. Their livers balloon up to 10 times their normal size. It’s a miserable life for these ducks, from start to finish. PETA have done undercover investigations on foie gras productions and have found extreme mistreatment beyond the standard practices, including severe, untreated wounds and cracked, bleeding bills.

According to PETA, “California passed a law banning the sale and production of foie gras effective in 2012. Force-feeding has also been outlawed in the U.K., Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark, and Israel.”
