“Animals are forced to ingest large quantities of food. This creates an awful lot of stress for the animals and they experience breathing difficulties. The animal’s liver can grow to weigh up to 1 kilo. Under normal circumstances this is barely 100 grams,” explained Bianca Debaets, Brussels’ secretary of state for animal welfare. “Force-feeding boils down to torture. I cannot permit it.”

According to Joe Loria, Communications and Content Manager at Mercy For Animals, “You can hear workers on camera tell our undercover investigator that the practice is so traumatic many birds die from it. Force-feeding is so cruel it has been banned in California and more than a dozen countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, and Israel.”
