UK pub owners harrassed, threatened for serving foie gras

Owners of The Bridge Inn in Calver in Great Britain are being harassed by animal rights activists.

According to the UK Telegraph pub owners David and Samantha McHattie have been the subject of a flood of one-star reviews from at least five countries such as England, the United States and even Argentina. The action comes after a customer gave a negative review of the establishment because foie gras is on the pub menu.

When it was revealed foie gras was being served, animal rights activists sprung into action not just with poor reviews online but also harassment and threats of intimidation of the McHatties and their customers. At one point, the pub owners were told that if they removed foie gras from their menu, the bad reviews would stop and be taken down.

The McHatties learned that similar harassment campaigns were conducted on pubs in two other cities in which the bad reviews were not removed from websites despite the pubs giving in. Sadly, despite the pub’s customers rallying to support The Bridge Inn at Calver, even patrons are subjected to abusive messages and their social media accounts trolled.

Animal rights is one of the environmentalist movement’s battalions of attacking our food supply and they do so piecemeal by winning battles against high end dishes like foie gras. While the delicacy is not a vital source of nourishment, there are those who like to eat it and the restaurants who serve it do so as a service to their customers.

This harassment campaign is one of many attempts by environmentalists to stealthly attack the human food supply and, simultaneously, wealth. While foie gras is expensive, it is no coincidence that it was targeted for prohibition since environmentalists hate prosperity too.
