PETA cel­e­brates as court re­in­states foie gras ban

Waterloo Region Record - - WORLD -

A fed­eral ap­peals court re­in­stated Cal­i­for­nia’s ban on foie gras Fri­day, find­ing that a state law pre­vent­ing sales of the lux­ury liver pâté was not pre­empted by the fed­eral gov­ern­ment’s author­ity to reg­u­late poul­try prod­ucts. An­i­mal rights ac­tivists and law­mak­ers who pushed the ban through the leg­is­la­ture said the process of fat­ten­ing the liv­ers of the an­i­mals was cruel and in­hu­mane. PETA cel­e­brated the unan­i­mous rul­ing.
