Brigitte Bardot sends PM Kopacz letter on cruelty to geese
PR dla Zagranicy
French actress Brigitte Bardot has written an open letter to Polish Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz over the treatment of geese in the country.
Bardot, who is heavily involved in the fight for animal rights through her Brigitte Bardot Foundation, wrote that certain practices on Polish farms – including the collection of down feathers from live geese – are inhumane.
In her letter, Bardot argued that the country should “ban these heinous and unacceptable practices.”
A similar letter was sent to Hungarian PM Viktor Orban after Bardot watched a news documentary.
“French television broadcast terrible images, shot on Polish and Hungarian farms, showing live geese being plucked in dirty and revolting conditions,” wrote a statement on the Foundation’s website.
“This barbaric operation, which causes severe injury and extreme suffering to birds, can be repeated up to four times a year!” (rg)
