From aboveground activists in the US:

"A message was received anonymously by aboveground activists in the US that on Sunday, July 27, 2003, concerned citizens visited the home of Didier Jaubert--a vehement supporter of foie gras--in Santa Rosa, CA.

Details of Jaubert's plans to open a restaurant in conjunction with Sonoma Foie Gras are in the following news article.

SFG is one of only two foie gras producers in the U.S. Workers shove large metal pipes down the throats of ducks four times per day for 3-4 weeks and pump them full of massive quantities of food to enlarge their livers to 8-10 times their natural size for this French "delicacy".

The restaurant is slated to open next month (later than the article says). Messages were left with red paint and glass etching cream on his front door, windows, and three garage doors such as "foie gras is animal torture" and "stop or be stopped." Jaubert's locks and garage doors were superglued as well.

We cannot let this restaurant open. Jaubert needs to hear immediately that people will not tolerate this atrocity. ... "
