Geese gather towards the only outdoor air vent in the building where they are kept for force-feeding, La Ferme du Treil, Courbiac de Tournon, France, Monday, November 22, 2010.<br />
<br />
The interior is dim, fluorescent strips give just enough light to conduct the force-feeding. Darkness keep the birds calm. A radio plays constantly, to cut out external noise and further subdue the geese. Naturally nervous animals, if the geese panicked, they could easily injure themselves in their cages. Hematomas are to be avoided as the meat could not then be sold.
