Foie gras: the battle continues

Foto van gavage
With Christmas coming up, there's of course a renewed debate about foie gras. However, it's not really a discussion. Fans and opponents hardly listen to opposite arguments.
On the fan site, goose raisers present themselves having an honourable job in an old tradition. Take Yves et Geneviève Boissiere in Frespech (Lot-et-Garonne), who will happily receive you and show you their farm. They even have a foie gras museum.
On the other hand, activists like those at Stop gavage will use any disgusting picture to prove their vision. The word 'gavage' refers to the way of raising goose by forced nutrition.
I've not made a decision yet: yes, it's horrible what they do to goose. And yes, foie gras is delicious...

De foto's geven inderdaad een voor mensen onsmakelijk beeld. Maar vinden die ganzen het voeren op deze wijze nu inderdaad zo erg of vergelijken wij de beelden te veel naar menselijke maatstaven?

Hallo,

Voor zover ik weet worden de ganzen via een trechter onder druk gevoederd. Dit gedurende verschillende weken, om de vervetting van de lever te bewerkstelligen.
Deze vorm van dierenmishandeling moet ik NIET en dus ganzenleverpastei ook niet!
