Village pub owners compared with London terrorist after animal activists find fois gras on the menu
The owners of a village pub gave been compared with a London terrorist and bombarded with one-star reviews after animal right activists discovered they have fois gras on the menu. David and Samantha McHattie, who run The Bridge Inn in Calver,in the Peak District, have been faced with a torrent of abusive and seen their business page plagued with over 190 one star reviews from people in the UK, Canada, United States, Germany and Argentina. They were then blackmailed by a group of users who said they would delete their reviews if the couple took foie gras off the menu. Customers who left positive reviews or disagreed with the "protestors" were also targeted with abusive messages. "They are just trying to bully us and our customers," said Mrs McHattie, 35.
Activists have stolen photos of the children of those defending us and posted them on activists websites, as you can imagine this is a gross invasion of privacy and has lead to a lot of anger.

I kind of barbaric lets be honest so it must taste amazing. I once was given veal without knowing it my grandfather wife was european and she cooked it. Stupidly I asked what the sausage was made out of because it was amazing she said veal and I felt bad for about 10 seconds then took another bite damn it was good. Never had it again but i would eat it again while feeling guilty
