Activists demonstrate outside Chicago restaurant
January 28, 2007 (WLS) -- Animal rights activists are fighting the serving of the foie gras at a River North restaurant.
They braved the cold and snow this morning outside Bin 36 to get the city to cite the restaurant for breaking the law. The sale of foie gras was banned in Chicago last year. It is fattened duck or goose liver made by force-feeding the birds.
According to the Animal Protection and Rescue League, Bin 36 says they're "giving" it to customers who buy an expensive salad. Bin 36 did not return calls on the matter.
