Approximately 14,000 Asiatic, Brown and Sun bears across south Asia are being tortured for the purpose of extracting their bile. In Chinese traditional medicine, a bear's bile, extracted from the gallbladder, is thought to have healing powers. "Bear farmers" keep these animals in tiny cages where they are literally crushed as they grow larger and larger. Meanwhile, a small permanent hole is cut in their abdomens where the bile can be drained from their gallbladders. The bears can remain in this horrific state for periods of up to twenty years. Bears on these "farms" have been observed to engage in disturbing behavior such as gnawing off their paws and/or beating their head and chest against their cage in attempts to kill themselves. This barbaric practice must be stopped.

      This is terrible. How could any human being do some of these absolutely awful things to another creature? I see the numbers 14,000 Asian, Brown and the Sun Bears are treated in this way, for what? FOR THE BEAR's BILE??? This is the worst thing I have heard of to let a bear, endure this treatment...I ask again for what reason? For Chinese medicine? Stop this now please.

      Chinese people are pure evil to the core. Maybe they are genetically programmed to be self-centered and soulless. Whatever the reason, the world would be a better place without many of the evil Chinese humans lurking the planet.

      Who do you think taught Todd to love animals? To keep any animal in such a way is not only a crime against humanity, but a crime against Nature.
