Eurogroup for animals is shocked that every Member of the European Parliament received last week a gift from several organisations including “Strasbourg pour l’Europe” which included a terrine of Foie Gras in an attempt to convince them of the necessity of maintaining parliamentary sessions in Strasbourg.
Foie gras is the object of much controversy and its production is currently banned in the majority of EU Member States. Indeed only last week India decided to ban the import of foie gras because of animal welfare concerns. We believe that this cruelly produced delicacy is a scandalous gift and should not be accepted by Members of the European Parliament as it perpetuates an industry that is inherently cruel to animals.

Eurogroup for Animals, the federation of European animal welfare organisations, urgently calls on citizens to vote in next week’s European Elections. Each vote by Europe’s citizens will determine the future lives and wellbeing of billions of animals and every vote counts. Despite the recognition of the sentience of animals in the Lisbon Treaty, the EU has only attempted to govern the welfare of animals for economic purposes. International free trade agreements like the one currently being negotiated with the USA also further water down the rather limited legal protection of animals in Europe. Luckily, over the last months more than 200 election candidates from all 28 European member states have signed a pledge stating that they will work on substantial improvements for animal welfare in the coming five year Parliamentary term.
