Both The Feathers Hotel and The Malthouse ( ) restaurant in Ledbury have now taken foie gras ( ) off the menu. This was verified today by an activist that went and checked both outlets for foie gras.

Thank you to all who contacted the above restaurants. A close eye will be kept on both premises over the coming year.

Other restaurants selling foie gras in the area:

Tel: 01531 670381
Fax: 01531 670830

(The Verzon serves: Ballottine of foie gras)

Cottage In The Wood Hotel

Fax: 01684 560662

Please inform these restaurants of the disgusting methods used to produce foie gras asking them to permanently cease to serve this vile 'produce'.

Sample Letter:

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I understand that your restaurant serves 'foie gras' which is a cruel delicacy where geese and ducks are force fed up to three pounds of grain a day until their livers swell up to ten times their normal size becoming diseased then sold under the name foie gras.

A high percentage of these birds that live in factory farm conditions abroad cannot even stand up properly after being force fed these huge amounts of grain.

The practice of rearing geese and ducks for foie gras production is outlawed in the UK.

Please look into the cruelty involved in producing foie gras using the link below and remove it from your menu.

Delicacy of Despair:

Until you stop serving foie gras I will boycott your restaurant and encourage everyone I know to do the same.

I look forward to your reply on this issue.

Yours sincerly,

Thursday 17th August 2006

Activists displayed Stop Live Exports banners and posters outside the National sheep Association and National Beef Association's Headquarters in Malvern, Worcestershire.

Support from the passing public was as good as it always is at this location whilst the animal abusers in question (NSA/NBA) were named and shamed for supporting the disgusting and evil trade in live animal exports ( )
