Animal activists score victory against foie gras with major hotel
A campaign to ban foie gras around the world is sizzling up after a major hotel chain's Maui location succumbed to pressure from animal rights groups and pulled the French delicacy off its menu last week.
The Four Seasons Resort in Maui removed foie gras from a posh
$350-a-plate dinner slated for May 6, after the Animal Protection & Rescue
League (APRL) applied pressure to the hotel.
The removal comes following a proposal to outlaw foie gras in Hawaii last year.
