These poor bears are suffering every day!! I sure hope this documentary gets TV time and not just on the internet.

With Yao Ming's name connected to it, I'm sure it will have a deeper impression on people and maybe they will finally listen and stop putting the bears through so much useless pain!!!

That has gone a long way to restore my faith in the Chinese. And I hope not to offend those many wonderful conscious and caring Chinese people when I say that, but please understand where I am coming from. We are all aware that the African black rhino remains under threat because its horn is in demand for use as a fever reducer in traditional Chinese medicine resulting in the black rhino suffering a 96 percent decline in numbers in more recent years. So I thank you Yao Ming for making a difference to the lives of the tortured bears. China needs some karmic points as I am afraid it is too late to save the rhinos.

I hope people will listen to Yao Ming. I'm glad he has compassion for these poor animals.

If Yao Ming talks, hopefully people will listen.

This documentary should be shown to Junior & senior H.S. students throughout China.

Things will only change if the children are taught compassion for the bears at an early age.
