Today in China 10,000 bears are kept prisoner for extracting bile from their gall bladders. The bears are kept in a horizontal position, in cages that look rather like coffins. They wear a metal collar and are held down by pressure bars.

hOw sad indeed!! shame on thOse perpetrating suCh in huMane and cRuel treAtments upon another of the Creator's bleSSed gifts to earth.....they fear, they love, they are great mothers, teachers and mostly eat nuts, berries, veg's and clean up dead animals from the wilderness landscape, I hOpe peOple get a gRip on their intelligence beFore it IS too late!!
Just as my petition's animal(the wolf) is a vital and needed PaRt of the eco-sysTem,so is the bear!!.........pleaSe also consider Our Petiton:

"Stop Killing 'OUR' Wolves in Alaska and the USA" sponsored on Care2 and on myspace through; Tan's Alt. Movement

It is important to remember that animal parts are a part of traditional Chinese medicine, especially now that Chinese medicine is becoming so popular.

Thanks Cher, signed and noted. I read about this and am glad to sign the petition. These animals spend years on their stomaches in metal cages in horrible pain. There is a Moon Bear sanctuary in China that has been rescuing hundreds of bears by paying the bile farm owners to retire but more has to be done.

Stories from Animal you mean? China, Korea and Vietnam just have to grow up really, they are still in the dark ages. If they want the respect of the west, they need to change the way they treat animals.
