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in China has been withdrawn after a campaign backed by James Bond actor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.
