These little sweethearts were transferred to us from Michigan Duck Rescue and Sanctuary last Thursday after they were found on the tarmac at Detroit Metro Airport. The people who found the chicks at the airport said the mother and a few chicks were run over. These 13 chicks remained there. We would like to thank Matt at Michigan Duck Rescue and Sanctuary for taking them in and keeping them safe until they were brought to SASHA Farm. Now we begin deciding on airline-themed names. :)
Donate to our Spring Social Fundraiser Bake Sale for the Animals on May 10. All items must be made with 100% vegan ingredients. To donate email email@example.com. All proceeds from the sale of the baked goods goes toward food and veterinary care for the SASHA Farm animals.
Yesterday California’s foie gras ban was overturned today by U.S. District Court Judge Stephen Wilson in Los Angeles. "He ruled that the ban, passed in 2004 and in effect as of 2012, illegally encroaches on the regulatory domain of the federal government. The Poultry Products Inspection Act, which is a federal law, regulates the sale and distribution of the bodies and body parts of tormented birds, and unfortunately, forbids states from imposing particular conditions on production."
Foie gras producers shove pipes down ducks’ throats to force feed them far more than they would ever eat. The force feeding can cause bruises, lacerations, and sores. The duck’s livers may grow to ten times the normal size. (Humane Society of the United States)
An appeal to this ruling is possible but we will have to see what happens. Please try to educate others about this inhumane practice.
