As you may have heard, the state of California has banned foie gras. The state buys the argument that we shouldn’t be cruel to ducks or geese just to satisfy our desire for something good to eat. Apparently, it’s okay to kill animals and eat them (although I suppose that will become an issue at some point) but it’s not okay to hurt them first. Some restaurants have found ways around the ban but most restaurants have taken the delicacy off of the menu. So, what do you folks think? Is it possible to be cruel to a duck or a goose? And, assuming it is, is this sufficient reason for the government to interfere and ban the dish that results? Or, as I think, is this none of the government’s business?Email This Post To A Friend
