      >Governor Schwarzenegger Signs Two Important Bills Into Law!
      >Thanks to the help of the many of you who called, e-mailed and faxed,
      >Governor Schwarzenegger signed State Bill 1520 into law. This bill will
      >ban the cruel force-feeding of ducks and geese to produce foie gras (fatty
      >liver) as well as the sale of this so-called delicacy in the state of
      >California. This is truly historic legislation for animal protection, as
      >it is one of a few times that a state has entirely banned a cruel factory
      >farming practice. Some 20,000 ducks are force-fed and slaughtered every
      >year by Sonoma Foie Gras, the sole California producer of foie gras.
      >IDA and Animal Protection and Rescue League (APRL) are targeting
      >restaurants nationwide to urge them to remove cruelly derived foie gras
      >from their menus. Please contact us at
      ><mailto:banfoiegras@...>banfoiegras@... if you are
      >interested in becoming involved or if you know of a restaurant that serves
      >foie gras that we should contact.
      >Governor Schwarzenegger also signed into law Assembly Bill 1857, which
      >prohibits the declawing of native, wild and exotic cats! The law will go
      >into effect on January 1, 2005.
      >1. Please also contact Governor Schwarzenegger one last time to thank him
      >for his compassionate decisions on SB1520 and AB 1857.
