Demand justice for baby ducklings thrown into a mincer at a foie gras factory

A video captured by an animal rights group at a foie gras factory in France shows workers throwing live ducklings into an industrial mincer.

According to a report by Newsweek, the clip illustrates the fate of as many as 40 million female ducks a year. Only male ducks are kept as they gain weight faster than their female counterparts.

The male ducks are used to make foie gras, a controversial foodstuff that draws heavy criticism for the cruel way that it is made.

The process of obtaining foie gras is so cruel it has been banned in Britain though imports from France are not restricted.

The remaining female ducklings are used to make anything from cat food to fertilisers.

The captured video shows workers sorting through thousands barely day old fluffy ducklings, throwing female birds into a large metal cylinder.

The ducklings appear to be dropped onto a second conveyor belt which allegedly takes them to their gruesome death.

The birds can be heard squeaking throughout their ordeal – this cruelty needs to be thoroughly investigated and stopped.

Please sign and share the petition to demand justice for millions of baby ducklings thrown into a mincer.
