Force-feeding of geese and ducks is illegal in Israel!

Starting 1 April 2005: force-feeding of geese and ducks is illegal in Israel!

Israel April 4, 2005

From Anonymous for Animal Rights:  

The Israeli Supreme Court ruled on August 2003 in a detailed decision that force-feeding of geese and ducks is in violation of the Animal Welfare Act, and that the regulations that had allowed this practice were not valid. The Court allowed an extension of about a year and a half, ending at the end of March 2005, before the ban was to be enforced. Yesterday, on 31 March 2005, the Supreme Court rejected a request by the Ministry of Agriculture to extend the delay by an additional year. Israel is the world's fourth largest producer of foie gras, and most of its production is designated for export to the European Union and Japan.

Anonymous for Animal Rights, which manages this campaign for the last 6 years, wishes to thank every person and organization who took part in this campaign, wrote letters to Israeli authorities, attended vigils in front of Israeli Consulates, provided us with information, and gave us moral or financial support. Special thanks to the /World Society for the Protection of Animals/ (WSPA), whose financial support made possible our public campaign, and Noah, The Israeli Association of Animal Protection Organizations, which managed the legal struggle against force- feeding.

United Poultry Concerns is a nonprofit organization that promotes the compassionate and respectful treatment of domestic fowl.
