What's your opinion on the production/ sale of foie gras?
I have seen animals killed on small farms in a quick and clean manner so that they can be eaten, and I'm ok with that. I am not ok with an animal being tortured so that it can be eaten, I find that unnecessary and cruel.
Foie gras? It's debateable. I find the ducks being forced indoors for three weeks more objectionable than the force feeding they're subjected to. I'm also assuming conditions like those at the Hudson Valley Foie Gras farm, but I admit that it might not be the case everywhere. Just look at how miserably some poultry and meat farms are run.
You might find Anthony Bourdain's video of interest, he thinks the Foie Gras issue is overblown:
