|Sir Roger Moore|
Sir Roger Moore is a well-known supporter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). It is no mere hobby for Roger Moore, he deeply believes in the cause. Accordingly, Moore personally has paid for a campaign against a London department store which is the target of numerous celebrities. His concern is the sale of foi gras:
"The callous treatment of geese filmed by investigators at the very farms in France from which Fortnum & Mason's distributor sources foie gras was far more violent and cowardly than anything James Bond ever faced at the hands of villains. I want shoppers to hear the simple fact that foie gras is so cruel that it is illegal to produce in the U.K. and to know that Fortnum & Mason keeps selling this bird-abusing foodstuff although the British public is up in arms about it."Other stars in on the campaign include "Absolutely Fabulous" star Joanna Lumley, Morrissey, Rickey Gervais and Ralph Fiennes. The leafletting campaign outside the store continues through Christmas 2013.
Sir Roger refuses to go quietly. Good for him.
