Would you Like to See the Reality of the Cruelty Behind Foie Gras? Video: “The Foie Gras Assembly Line”
As you may know, I’m a fan of video. You simply cannot argue against the reality of what it shows.
Well, here’s a video that exposes the horribly cruel reality of Foie Gras. You simply will not believe the cruelty involved in Foie Gras. For those who do not know, Foie Gras is a food product made of the liver of a duck or goose that has been specially fattened. This video focuses on the cruelty exposed inside Elevages Perigord, Canada's largest foie gras producer.

At the Edge of the World chronicles the controversial Sea Shepherd Antarctic Campaign against a Japanese whaling fleet.
I don’t have too much time due to work load to include all of the details regarding this action for the Dolphins of Indian River Lagoon. I did place a link below and some details regarding the issue.
• Target: Commissioners of Brevard County, Indian River County, St. Lucie County, Martin County and Palm Beach County
• Sponsored by: Ocean River Institute
In 2008, the dolphins of Florida's Indian River Lagoon faced a "marine mammal unusual mortality event." This year, it looks like another such event is underway. Dolphins are being found emaciated, with respiratory problems, brain lesions, skin-eating fungal infections and other signs of suffering.
To save the Indian River Lagoon dolphins, we must lessen the phosphorous and nitrogen entering the lagoon.
The dolphins' home has become a toxic soup. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that the Indian River Lagoon gets more than 400,000 pounds of phosphorus per year. That's 200,000 more pounds than it can sustain. But we have the power to change the fate of these dolphins.
Urge the commissioners of counties surrounding the Indian River Lagoon to ban fertilizers with phosphorus and quick release nitrogen to lessen the community's contribution of toxins into the lagoon.
