Across North America, black bears have been found with gallbladders removed, paws chopped off, and bodies left to rot, all to satisfy the demand in the Asian communities' use of bear products in Traditional Chinese Medicine, both here and abroad

Signed & Shared! An egregious trade that must be stopped! It is absolutely shameful how the NRA is putting up resistance to protect American wildlife by poachers! Now the NRA wants us to accept poaching! The NRA doesn't even care if we lose precious wildlife- all they care about is being able to shoot anything and everything! The majority of Americans want our bears protected against such immoral exploitation and we need to make this very clear to our govt. officials!

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

I am so sick and tired of the Chinese and their anciient medicine. They have managed as one culture to slowly put many animals all over the world into the extinct list, or in nearly extinct. We have to stop this and the only way to do this is if governments stop trading with these people. If there is not need for the product there will be no killing!
