Norfolk, Va. – A Hero to Geese Award is on its way from PETA to House House in recognition of Untitled Goose Game, the number one game that puts a goose’s wants and needs in the spotlight—and lets her fight back against the humans who have invaded her woodland home.
“In the game, players are on the goose’s side in a battle against humans who have gated off her habitat and dropped litter in her lake,” says PETA Vice President of Marketing Joel Bartlett. “PETA encourages Untitled Goose Game’s fans to let the game play out in real life by choosing not to eat birds or wear down-filled jackets.”
While geese in nature are free to swim in streams, forage for flowers, and have a lakeside picnic, in the foie gras industry, several pounds of fat and grain are pumped into their stomachs every day through tubes shoved down their throats in order to sicken and enlarge their livers. In the down industry, geese are hung upside down and their throats are slit, often while they’re still conscious.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat, wear, or abuse in any other way”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
