Some Asian cultures use a special guillotine to amputate bear paws, sometimes while the bear is still alive. The animal is often first beaten- as there is a belief that the adrenaline rushing through the body makes the meat more tender.

N&S. All of us humans must stop anything we are doing to harm any being on this Earth...we are guests in the home of our mother, and are not to kill or harm any of our relatives while here. They are our cousins, brothers, sisters, relatives...our closest relatives in this Universe. Torment, terror, injustice, abuse, neglect, lack of wisdom enforced,, and torture are inescapable whenever animals are used ass our "food", no matter how the term "humanely raised" is used. Oxymoron.

When people say "Give me a hand." this is not what they had in mind. Sick, sick individuals that would do such heinous things to any animal. Some ancient cultures in the Middle East called for the lopping off of a hand if the person stole. Seems fitting for the asshats that stole the lives of these bears.

So signed!

Signed & Shared! It is so hard to accept how cruel some people and cultures are to animals! They are committing evil by inflicting such terrible suffering to God's creation and they must stop or they will pay by having to suffer too one day- throughout all eternity in the afterlife when they meet their Creator and even on this Earth when evil catches up with their horrific crimes! They better stop it now before it is soon too late to be redeemed- just one horrific incident of such monstrous cruelty to these bears will damn their souls for eternity and they deserve it!
"To inflict cruelties on defenseless creatures, or condone such acts, is to abuse one of the cardinal tenets of a civilized society - reverence for life." - Dr. Jon Evans
"These birds and animals and fish cannot speak, but they can suffer, and our God who created them, knows their sufferings, and will hold him who causes them to suffer unnecessarily to answer for it. It is a sin against their Creator." - George Q. Cannon
