Saving Bears in China
February 11, 2013 | Lindsey Blomberg
Last Thursday, Animals Asia, an organization devoted to the welfare of
wild and urban animals in Asia, reported that six bears rescued this
past January from an illegal bear bile farm in China have each undergone
successful surgery to remove their damaged gall bladders...

Cruel protests by Korean bear farmers
19 Nov 2013
G. Moon the founder of moonbears.org today condemned the recent
protest by bear farmers in Seoul on November 15, 2013.
In this protest the farmers actually brought 3 bears in cages, no doubt, to
call attention to themselves. They are opposing the cessation of bear
farming and the environment ministries plan to slaughter the bears freed.
"What many people do not realize is that bears actually spend their whole
lives in such cages in Korean bear farms" G Moon said. "This was not just
a cage to bring the poor animal to the protest but where it lives while it's
gall bladder is inhumanly extracted by the farmers" .
The bear farmers are demanding that bear farming come under the
responsibility of the agriculture ministry rather than the environment. They
say a bear is no different to a cow or a pig.
"This is nonsense" said G Moon, "not even pigs or cows, which are also
often treated very badly in Korea, are kept in cages where they cannot
move and have a tube in them that constantly and painfully take their bile.
"This protest exposes the farmers for who they really are.
It exposes their cruelty and also the fact they want to see Koreans eating
bear meat just so
they can increase their profits" . "However it is fair that they should get
reasonable compensation when the bears are taken as the government
originally fostered bear farming in Korea”, she said.
moonbears.org is urging the government to ban bear farming, to buy the
bears from the farmers and then to establish sanctuaries so the bears can
spend the rest of their lives in comfort and peace.

New genocide policy for bears in Korea
moonbears.org is dismayed at the actions likely to result from years of
lobbying to abolish bear farming in Korea.
Now when finally the disgusting practice is being meaningfully challenged
the Governments solution is to slaughter the bears being "freed" .
This expedient approach is probably regarded as being humane by the
Government and groups such as WSPA.
We should all ask the question how a country with the 3rd largest financial
reserves in the world should decide to punish with death the very bears who
were being farmed directly as a result of their policies to encourage bear
farming many years ago.
We should ask why a fraction of these reserves cannot be used to show these
animals the respect they deserve and let then live out their days in
peaceful reserves such as those established by Animals Asia in China and
This issue deserves attention in the international media and the Government
and others who have agreed to the genocide policy now announced.
Please see my attached press release and get it out there.

Drug companies in China are refusing to stock products containing bear bile. The bile extraction process is dangerous for bears, and the medicines themselves may be unsafe for humans. Commend Chinese pharmacies for refusing to stock products containing bear bile.
Signed all. Thanks everyone for your hard work to promote this. It needs to stop.
All Signed and up to date! Thank you x

Too many bears must endure daily torture as a result of the demand for bear bile in China. Bears kept for bile extraction are forced to endure tiny cages, open wounds and chronic infections. Urge the President of China to make harvesting bear bile illegal in order to prevent the unnecessary suffering of countless bears.

Dear Madam, dear Sir,
The Asiatic Black Bear, also called the Moon Bear, is held in captivity to harvest bile, a digestive juice stored in the gall bladder. When extracted, the bear's bile is for sale as an ingredient in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
To facilitate the bile milking process, the bears are kept in extraction cages, also known as crush cages, which allows easy access to the bear's abdoman while preventing the bear from standing up, or sometimes from moving at all.
Bile is extracted twice a day, and is believed to be very painful as bears often moan, bang their heads and chew their paws. There is an implanted tube in the abdoman, or other methods include pushing a hollow steel stick into the abdoman.
Bile bears suffer from a variety of physical problems which include loss of hair, malnutrition, stunted growth, muscle mass loss, and often have their teeth and claws extracted. When the bears stop producing bile after a few years, they are usually killed for their meat, fur, paws and gall bladders. Bear paws are considered a delicacy, and have been seen priced at $250.
I ask China to stop the cruel practice of bear farming and to send the animals to a sanctuary to be rehabilitated and have a normal life free from torture.
I saw this comment.
"Ms. Yulan Lawson, QL
Isaac Bashevis Singer Nobel Peace Prize Winner wrote in his book, 'Enemies a love story', "As often has Herman had witnessed the slaughter of animals and fish, he always had the same thought. In their behaviour toward creatures, all men were Nazi’s. The smugness with which man could do with other species as he pleased exemplify the most extreme racist theories the principle that might is right. Lest we forget!"
this violation of an animal's body is so obscene and cruel, i am sick from the thought. signed.

It is believed that bile is extracted from the bears stomach and gall bladder very most cruelly. The bears experience intense pain + agony and are made to suffer for prolonged periods of time during as well as after the bile extraction process

VietNamNet Bridge – More than 100 bears at the Bear Rescue Centre were condemned to almost certain death until Animals Asia Foundation established a Bear Rescue Centre in Tam Dao national park, the northern province of Vinh Phuc.
These bears now face an uncertain future because of a land development project, said VIPs, including the Australian Ambassador, the Belgian Ambassador, and heads of international organizations who recently attended a special Open Day at the centre.
They stressed that work on the planned expansion of the Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre (VBRC) should continue uninterrupted.
The future of the centre is being threatened because a private company wants to take control of 6 hectares of land that has been set aside by the Government for an expansion of the center to build holiday villas.
“The centre has been a great success story in the battle against illegal bear bile trade and farming,” said Animals Asia Vietnam Director, Tuan Bendixsen.
