Written by PETA | September 22, 2009

Have you been sitting around the house, wondering why your old chum, Sir Roger Moore, hasn’t given you a ring lately?

Truthfully, me neither, but if you are ever given the chance to get on his good side, you should know that opting for foie gras over truffles will get you pulled from his next party’s guest list.

In a recent article for the Daily Mail, Sir Roger writes about the horrors of the foie gras industry, in which birds are force-fed, often until their livers burst. “I refuse to speak to old friends who, even when they know how it is produced, are prepared to overlook the suffering for self-gratification,” states Sir Roger. “My wife, Christina, feels just the same. No creature deserves to be treated as these birds are for our delectation.”

Talk about commitment to a cause.

Want to know what else Sir Roger Moore is doing in support of PETA’s campaign to get foie gras eliminated from menus across the globe? Check out the rest of the article here.

    Sir Roger Moore you are my favourite James Bond too. Thank you!

    Hi. Personally i would never purchase products like fois gras. If i had my way all meat products would show pictures on the packaging of excatly how the product was produced. However i do feel that humans have the right to choose what they want to consume. At times I feel sites like PETA are very bias and one sided. There is no excuse for poor animal welfare however i do find it upseting to see that charitys like the RSPCA spend millions feeding and rehoming western cats and dogs meanwhile millions of humans are going hungry without shelter on a daily basis.

    Sir Roger is a 1st class guy. That’s Bond James Bond.

  • Kelsey says:

    He is a hero and a courageous voice for those who would otherwise not be heard!

  • patrick w. buirke says:

    Sir Roger is quite right to condemn the consumption of Foie gras as I have been fervent opposer of the ghastly stuff over the years and I always will PW Burke

    I wish Stella McCartney would stop talking to her good friend Madonna until “Madge” stops wearing fur!

  • ACarLessFamily says:

    nathan norris I’m “British” we all say Peedophiles which sounds nothing like Peta files! Well done 007 xx

  • Maureen Smith says:

    At last it has reached the daily papers and more people will know the truth. Well done Mr.Moore

  • Igor says:

    Foie gras is not a “diseased liver” it’s a part of a natural mechanism for birds that usually migrate they just stock fat in their liver that’s all…

  • Cindy Eldredge says:

    Thank you Roger Moore to make animals suffer for something that is not needed. I ate it oncethen I found out how they made it.

  • Tom says:

    that’s a bit silly and extreme. Friendship should count for more than judging what someone eats.

  • AAG says:

    Classy Sir Roger!

  • NKULULEKO ZONDI says:

    hi

  • Carole Edmonds says:

    Dear Sir Roger Moore You were already my favorite Bond I’ll always love you for “The Spy Who Loved Me” but you have just been upgraded. Thank you on behalf of the geese.

  • Shari says:

    007 to the rescue! Roger Moore maybe the one who makes this deadly and cruel practice come to an end. We need to do a 007 video like the Pam Anderson “Cruelty Doesn’t Fly” It would be so cool.

  • Aneliese says:

    Good for him.

  • Susan Tyler says:

    What a horrible thing to do to these birds! I will tell everyone I know about this horror. And hope that they pass it on and hopefully it will put an end to the suffering of all of these birds.

  • nathan norris says:

    Your blog name “The Peta Files” sounds awfully close to the way British people pronounce the world “pedophiles.” Just thought I’d let you know.

  • Rev. Meg Schramm says:

    I wish there were more people like Sir Roger Moore out there people who are willing to use their power and influence to stand up for what is right in the world.
