New York City Council Considering A Foie Gras Ban

Feb 04, 2019 from the gothamist.com:

"The city council is considering a bill banning the sale of foie gras on the grounds that it's cruel to physically pump fowl full of feed before leading them to slaughter. "
"Rivera's bill would make selling foie gras a misdemeanor crime, imposing fines up to $1,000, even a year of jail time, on violators. The council has taken up this issue before, Tony Avella calling on Albany in 2008 to ban the force-feeding of ducks and geese. More than 10 years later, Rivera believes the "timing is right" for an NYC foie gras ban, because the United States Supreme Court just rejected a challenge to California's foie gras moratorium."
