Recently, an incident on a bear bile farm in North-West China involving a mother bear and her cub emphasizes the fact that harvesting bear bile is extreme torture for the bears who have to endure the procedure. Although the act of collecting bear bile

I thought that the Chinese (with all that they brag about having so much history) were a little more intelligent then they are letting the world to understand, how can you use something like Bile to cure anything, don't they understand what the Bile is for in someone's body? are they that stupid?

NS&S. Your signature has been recorded. Perhaps as the older generations of practioners and users die off this horror will cease. I don't trust the Chinese government to intervene.

Jill Robinson, founder of Animals Asia Foundation, said:
"Bears have arrived in a desperate state, frightened and aggressive with the wounds typical of bears rescued from bile farms. Scars on the face caused by repetitive behavior to beat against the bars, teeth almost totally damaged in an attempt to break the bars of the cage, legs in a terrible state because of poor nutrition and dehydration and had walked day after day on the iron bars.
It 'hard to imagine the pain and lived with for years. Each of their problems alone would have been enough unbearable. After surgery saved every bear slowly begins to recover, and his personality begin to shine through. '
The whole world has a duty to stop this Chinese vile and shameful custom - signed and noted ty dear Cher

I refuse to buy anything made in China unless I have no other choice and I absolutely need it! I have had very good luck doing that. I have found a huge growing market of American made products out there. I even found American made tennis shoes - one company - New Balance has them. They have all American made and American made from imported materials (not necessarily from China). I bought the all American made! I really hate China and their nasty animal tortures - wild and domestic. I think they are a despicable people who have no compassion whatsoever.

Signed with disgust. This is horrifying. I cannot imagine what these poor Bears endure daily,weekly,monthly and year after year. Why can't other countries get involved in the welfare of all the suffering animals in this hell hole. I wish we could all do more to stop this Bile bullshit industry. Where is that Astoroid when you need it????

Just to let you know something you might want to look into... Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has been dealing with the Chinese after EVERY BEAR HUNT... The same bear hunting groups that write all the "wolf and bear hunting laws in wisconsin" The bears Harvested in Wisconsin many times are pregnant sows and many are also trapped as live cubs...well where do you think the baby bears are going? There has been many investigations and if you do some online tracking and looking...it is on the internet with many undercover photo's and video's with Governor Walker and His Group of Bear Hounder Buddies Sending babie bears off to China to the bear bile farms for profit . Start digging activists.!!!

Of course, this is extreme torture, and the suffering of these bears (both mental and physical) must be endless. And yet, these people do not care, even thinking of the bile as medicine. How would they feel if the were put in a tiny cage in which they could not move and had a hole made in their bellies from which a liquid would be extracted? They would be in constant pain and such would be their life: only misery. But this is not how these people think. These bears do not matter to them. They are given to exploitation of these animals just to make profit from their suffering and sell useless "medicine" to ignorant people. Even if there were a speck of truth in this bile's medicinal properties, which I seriously doubt, I think it is high time we learned that we cannot end our suffering by making others suffer (as it is quite vice versa).
