Ducks Quack Up a Storm Against Foie Gras

Published by PETA.

On Saturday, dozens of PETA UK members in duck masks descended on the Oxford Street Selfridge’s for a flash mob–style protest. The “ducks” converged on the storefront, did a few rounds of the “birdie dance” (affectionately referred to as the “chicken dance” on this side of the pond), and dispersed.

The action was part of PETA UK’s campaign against foie gras—and against Selfridge’s for its refusal to stop selling the cruelly produced, diseased, fatty liver.

Oh, and they were led by the most adorable duck costume I’ve seen yet.


Are there words to the chicken dance? No one seems to know for sure.
