AS CHRISTMAS comes around Viva! is very disappointed to see foie-gras appearing on the menu at The Starr in Dunmow.

Foie-gras is the grossly enlarged liver of a duck or goose. Birds raised for this 'gourmet' cruelty are force-fed enormous quantities of food through a long metal pipe, three times a day.

This process of deliberate and painful over feeding continues for up to a month by which time the birds' livers have swelled to 10 times their normal size.

People have the power to end the sale of foie-gras by not visiting pubs that sell this barbaric 'delicacy'.
