Owain Yeoman Thinks Fortnum & Mason are Mental for Selling Foie Gras

Surrounded by “crime scene” hazard tape and chalk body outlines of dead geese, Welsh-born star Owain Yeoman, who plays Special Agent Wayne Rigsby in the hit Channel 5 television programme The Mentalist, led a protest against Fortnum & Mason’s continued sale of foie gras. Brandishing a sign that read, “F&M: Investigate Compassion – Ban Foie Gras”, Yeoman called for Fortnum & Mason to follow the lead of Harvey Nichols and Selfridges, who have stopped selling the horrible product under pressure from PETA. Foie gras production is so cruel that it is illegal under UK law.

“In the UK, foie gras production is literally a criminal procedure – so why is a shop that prides itself on its British heritage still selling this cruel product?” asks Yeoman. “We’re encouraging all compassionate people to shop elsewhere until Fortnum & Mason stops selling foie gras.”

Please join the long list of compassionate people – including Yeoman, Sir Roger Moore, Steven Berkoff, Jenny Seagrove, Carley Stenson, Peter Egan and the Duchess of Hamilton – who are speaking out against Fortnum & Mason’s continued sale of foie gras.
