At a normal office, Mondays can be pretty boring. Here in peta2, we’re celebrating a huge victory for ducks and geese—thanks to PETA UK and compassionate consumers everywhere!
Two years ago, PETA UK began urging Selfridges—a major chain store there— to stop selling foie gras. Foie gras is made by force-feeding ducks and geese, often resulting in wounds, and with ducks and geese growing up to ten times their natural size.
Needless to say, anyone who knows right from wrong can see that foie gras is disgusting, and we are thrilled to announce that after years of demonstrations, and thousands of letters and calls from caring people like you, Selfridges has pledged to stop selling foie gras forever!
This towering triumph is proof that every e-mail, phone call, and letter matters. Thanks for speaking up for ducks and geese!
