(CN/UK) Foie gras factory project abandoned

A licence to kill millions of geese at a massive foie gras factory farm in China has been withdrawn after a campaign backed by James Bond actor Roger Moore, it has been claimed.

British company Creek Projects Investments Ltd was to have funded the 10 million pound project to build one of the world's biggest facilities producing the liver pate, made by force-feeding ducks and geese.

Animal welfare campaigners said they had received confirmation from China that the construction will not now go ahead. The decision is said to have been taken after months of appeals and petitions in the UK and China.
