In Defense of Animals has welcomed news that the U.S 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has justly restored the California foie gras ban. The ban was initially passed in response to public outcry over cruel methods used to farm geese for foie gras after many years of campaigning by In Defense of Animals and other animal activists.
“We are thrilled on behalf of animals and the public that California’s landmark foie gras ban has been upheld after many years of campaigning,” said Marilyn Kroplick M.D., President of In Defense Of Animals. “Foie gras farms are little more than animal torture chambers.
