Horrifying images of a French foie gras plant show thousands of ducklings being thrown into trays and left behind to starve or choke.

Others have mutilated their beaks and claws before forcing them into small cages to fatten their liver to make the expensive delicacy.

The images were filmed in secret by a whistleblower in the award-winning Domaine de la Peyrouse factory in Coulounieix-Chamiers, on the outskirts of the capital Perigueux, Dordogne.

The recordings have been released by the French animal rights organization L214, which has called for the prohibition of foie gras production in France.

The disturbing images show female ducklings, which cannot be used to make foie gras, are thrown forcibly and thrown alive in large bins and left to die.

Most choke or starve.

The male ducks are forced to feed their throats before they are slaughtered.

L214 spokesperson Barbara Boyer said the males have clamped their heads in a machine that & # 39; mutilated by burning the end of their beaks to limit bird injuries & # 39 ;.
She added: & # 39; The forced cohabitation of hundreds or thousands of animals in most farms promotes aggressive behavior.

The factory is also a training facility associated with the Lycee Agricole de Perigueux - an agricultural high school that teaches students how to produce foie gras.

& # 39; But instead of limiting the number of animals on farms, people in the industry are mutilating them by removing their claws and the tip of the mouth. & # 39;

She said that the animals receive forced feeding for 10 to 12 days, a process that causes them to gasp and get diarrhea.

The livers of the birds can become 6 to 10 times the normal size and stop working.

Before they are slaughtered, they are stunned by immersing them in electrified water.

They are then vented and have their liver removed.

But the images show that some people regain consciousness during the process and suffer a painful death.

It has won prestigious prizes, including the & # 39; Origine Certifiee Perigord & # 39; and a gold medal at the Concours General Agricole in 2019, a competition instituted by the French government in 1870.
