Hudson Valley Foie Gras in Ferndale, New York is the nations largest foie gras factory farm in the U.S. And while most factory farms shun visits from the public, Hudson Valley Foie Gras is an exception.
It surprisingly offers tours to the public. So COKs undercover investigator took advantage of this opportunity by scheduling a visit, and wearing a hidden camera during the tour.
Even though this was a white-gloved, guided tour, the video reveals the sheer barbarity of this industry. What he documented can only be described as a torture chamber for birds—from pipes being shoved down their throats and food pumped into their stomachs to being grabbed by their wings, shackled upside down, and their throats slit.
