Wildlife presenter Bill Oddie recently wrote to BBC boss Lindsay Bradbury in protest over the British media giant’s promotion of foie gras on the show “Great British Menu”.

Foie Gras is a pâté made from the livers of ducks and geese, and the iconic presenter is campaigning against the cruel way producers fatten the livers – up to two kilograms of mash are pumped into the birds’ stomachs through a pipe two or three times a day. The pipes sometimes puncture the birds’ throats, causing the animals to bleed to death.

“This letter is simply to voice to the distaste and disappointment at the BBC’s apparent lack of awareness or, perhaps – worse still – moral concern. By featuring and publicising chefs and recipes involving foie gras, the BBC is condoning dreadful cruelty. It would be admirable if the BBC would literally and publicly disown the production and consumption of foie gas.”
