"In a series of five raids,
foie gras sellers in the North of Yorkshire were blitzed...
In the early hours of a recent morning, ALF activists visited the specialist
importers and distributors of the sick 'delicacy' foie gras. The two cars
in the driveway were paintstrippered, and then new spray paint was applied
and all the tyres slashed.
To support and promote such appalling acts of violence and terrorism against
animals, will always provoke a response from people who want to see an
end to this disgusting trade.
Along with the grotesquely force fed fatgoose, with the 'naturally' diseased
liver, the family butchers C & G Starkey received a well overdue visit.
This establishment brags about how it can supply all manner of exotic
meats to liven up any dinner table. There is nothing like dishing up suffering
and abuse to bring joy to a table. On the menu at C & G's is foie
gras and wild boar flesh, along with whatever your heart could possibly
desire in the exploitation of animals. This place received a re-decoration
and the locks and shutters and doors had superglue applied. They deserved
more, much more.
Onto the Fig and Fennel in Wetherby, and this delicatessen, sitting in
the middle of town, might have thought it would be free from retribution
over its support for the sick foie gras trade. But no, spray paint was
applied and again locks were glued. The profits from your delicacy of
despair are being wiped out.
The Devonshire Arms at Bolton Abbey received a visit, car tyres were slashed
and the hotel signs painted. I don't think your customers will appreciate
your support for foie gras. Either that, or they rejoice in the abuse
of animals. I don't think they were rejoicing on the morning we paid a
The Rudding Park complex home of the Clocktower restaurant also took a
hit. The heavy presence of security cameras protecting this hotel situated
just outside Harrogate, left only one option... the golf course. Activists
hit the golf course with garden forks and proceeded to dig up the greens.
And such nice greens they WERE too. Spray paint was also applied to the
putting surface, and then the signs outside were given a fresh paint job.
These actions were dedicated to the end of industrialised farming, we'll
be there, as you continue down the route of self destruction, every step
of the way.
