A CITY centre restaurant has taken foie gras off the menu after a string of protests by a county animal rights group.

Bearlands Restaurant and Wine bar used to serve up the controversial French delicacy to customers at its premises on Longsmith Street and had planned to have it as an option on its Christmas menu.

However, after a long campaign against the restaurant by Gloucestershire Animal Action executive head chef Robert Sinyard and Managing Director Glen Tanswell have taken it off the menus.

Yay! I go to uni in gloucestershire. I wasn't keen on the article though... these bits inparticular..

"We did not agree with it but felt bullied into it."

And why are the words force feeding in these things "" (i can't remember the name lol, brain dead today), it is force feeding no matter how you look at it.

"Due to the "force feeding" procedure, and the possible health consequences of an enlarged liver, animal rights and welfare organisations and activists regard foie gras production methods as cruel to animals. "

It's not a fact of regarding it as cruel.. it IS cruel.
