Stop this horrible crime

There are more than 1600 bears in captivity (1400 of them are Asian Moon Bears- Moon Bears, with distinctive 'V' mark on their chest) in over 110 bear farms in Korea.

The Korean government is responsible for this as they started importing bears from North America and Japan for breeding and export in early 1980's.

Visits to 10 bear farms in 2004 by GreenKorea group, confirmed hygiene standards and the conditions of bears were both extremely poor.

Most of the bears were in small dog cages, fed with pig's food for cost cutting measure by bear farmers. All bears showed signs of abnormal behaviour.

There are no regulations providing for any specific methods of slaughter, and there is a widespread belief that the bears are killed inhumanely.

Just imagine many bears waiting to be slaughtered for their gall bladder, feet and meat, crowded into small and filthy cages on daily basis.

Please sign this petiton to stop this horrible crime. We are aiming for 20,000 signatures to be the voice of all the farmed bears in the world.

      They have approximately 60,000 asianic bears in small cages with a cathedur in them because they believe that the vile is a aphrodisiac the cages are so small they cant even turn around sierra club is working on this issue and hopes to have it resolved by 2016(can you believe takes that long) I think we should put embargos on countries that behave this way have no respect for life image what a disgusting race of people. Maybe they should be put in cages for no reason or perhaps we could use them as farm animals then we could use their organs for when someone needs a transplant see what they think of that. I hope in the end all man kind gets exactly what they give to mother earth and all of her precious creatures that she provided us with to share and learn how to survive and respect all that her body gives to us her grandchildren.ronica bennett

      We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.
