Asiatic black bears are put in small cages known as 'crush cages' to restrict their movement & "milked" for bile with implanted surgical tubes. Bears bite at their paws & punch themselves in the stomach to stem the pain, so now are kept in steel traps.

This is another cruel practice humans inflict on animals that I can't understand. People in these countries need to be taught that there are alternatives that work and that don't involve such horror and pain to a living creature. It should be outlawed and enforced! I'm sick of hearing of these poor bears suffering.

THIS WHOLE SUBJECT MAKES ME SICK. THESE BEARS THAT ARE AGONIZINGLY TORTURED, SO THAT IT FORCES THEM TO KILL THEIR CUBS AND THEN COMMIT SUICIDE SHOULD BE ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO SHOW THAT THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE AND OVERWHELMINGLY CRUEL. THESE 'REMEDIES' THAT OTHER COUNTRIES FEEL THE NEED TO USE INVOLVING THE HORROR AND HORRENDOUS ABUSE OF ANIMALS IS SO OUTRAGEOUS IT IS PATHETIC. THESE PEOPLE PARTICIPATING IN THESE PRACTICES MUST BE ADDRESSED. A LAW must BE ENFORCED THAT THIS IS ILLEGAL, CRIMINAL ACTIVITY. NOT ONLY MUST THIS STOP ENTIRELY, BUT CATCH THESE MONSTERS AND PUT THEM IN A LAB FOR EXPERIMENTATION. MUTILATION IS JUSTICE FOR THESE INNOCENT ANIMALS.

I have been so outraged by this for months since hearing about the mother bear and cub story--that I have been told tghat I have talked at nauseum about it--but I cannot stop until everyone is aware of the torturous barbarism invoved in this practice. My signature wouldnt go thru due to an error but I will be back. If anyone knows of any further action that can be taken please let me know. This is one of tghe most vile, sickening practices that I have ever heard of in my entire life. and I have not exactly been sheltered! I awm filleld with disgust for these peoples!

Signed several different petitions and shared. Animals in the natural world are not known to commit suicide, so i can't even imagine the unbearable torture being inflicted on these bears their entire lives that would lead to a mother killing her cub and herself. China is beyond reprehensible. I wish the small number of Chinese citizens who want to put a stop to the multitude of atrocities had more power and influence.

You can show your distaste by abandoning Chinese Restaurants, let them know why. They are a cruel race of people and this is not only cruel it is barbaric. They have been known to cut off the paws of bears for some barbaric crazy medicine they like to concoct too. Avoid these quack medicine outlets, avoid the restaurants, don't buy anything Chinese and let them know why.

If you Really want to help end this barbaric trade - then please either volunteer your time and/or sponsor a bear with Animals asia who have three flagship programmes: End Bear Farming, Cat and Dog Welfare and Action against Cruelty. Under these, we have many campaigns, including the Moon Bear Rescue aimed at bringing the barbaric practice of bear farming and the bile trade to an end. We have signed agreements with both the Chinese and Vietnamese governments to rescue 700 bears from the torture of bile farms, and bring them to our sanctuaries to live out their lives in peace and safety. Please click https://www.animalsasia.org/donate /index.php?n&lg=en
or sponsor a victim of bear bile farming

You can try refreshing the page, and if you're still having problems, just try again later. We're doing our best to get things working smoothly!

Let me just say this is beyond cruel ... it is unconsciounable and CRIMINAL!
The Chinese have no morals, no conscience and certainly do not care about the suffering of humans so why would they care about the suffering of animals !

I will sign any petition every petition until the Chinese finally stop torturing animals for their so called 'traditional medicine'.

We must make the Chinese people understand that many of their longstanding practices are abhorrent to the outside world. They raise cats and dogs in littlt cages stacked up behind restaurants for dinner specials,Rhinos are killed for their horns, animals are skinned alive for fur,sharks are killed by the hundreds of thousands for their fins, Bear bile has even become a problem here. Bears are killed for there gall bladder With open internet access the Chinese will understand more about the way we feel. But everything depends on the man at the top.

I believe in Animals Asia. - I DON'T BELIEVE IN CHINA. They lie.Their word is not good. Period. Bile is bussiness.They will continue breeding bears for the same cruel practice. They have made no compromise with stoping that practice.Until that is done and exercised, we will keep saving some bears and others will take it's place. - Saving lives is great of course! But they keep biling as they keep skinning. Didn't they said they were taking measures and inforcing laws to stop this? It is worse than ever!! In theory, it could be easier to stop skinning because only in some places in China,is where dogs and cats are eaten. But it has not stopped! As I said before, if people that eat dogs/cats would eat all the dogs and cats that are killed every day, they would be eating dogs and cats in all their meals including lunch!!!!!! And, as you may have read, it is not considered a cheap meal! (proof is they have a special festival in which principal plate is dog!!!, so it's clearly not considered a daily meal) Question is: HOW DO THEY DISPOSE OF ALL THAT FUR???????????????
Throwing them to garbage? That quantity of skin and hair burning at the same time and constantly, could be seen from space clearly!!! And do we have to think they are digging holes every day to throw all that? Talking contamination.....Too many animals dying unnaturaly, constantly, all with fur!!!
Fur is used! It's fur all the time!!!! . Some people may eat animals but stimulation comes from selling the fur probably. WHERE IS ALL THAT FUR!!!!!! - WHY ARE THEY NOW BUYING ST BERNARDS? LOT OF MEAT !BUT, FUR IS NOT THROWN!!!!!!!!! Now, if what I read is true, some people are selling ST Bernards from US? How are they traveling? With less dogs, they have longer pieces of beautiful, warm, luxurious fur! With less animals they can make a coat!!! Why breeding concern groups are not investigating (that we know) to see what is happening? That could help a lot. Their word is important.Animals are important for them. For China this is business. Bile is business too and it's businesss that people from Occident is patronizing. We should ask to ban all animal products from asia with the exception of those that are commonly used to eat and not accept things we know are causing suffering. (Personally, I understand all death causes suffering.) Biling causes extreme suffering - Common products are SOME fish, and other sea animals like shrimps etc.... those that are not at risk to disappear and that are caught or produced following adecuate standards. . All the other should be under a WORLD ban petition.

Disgusting rotten human filth who dare to do this to these beautiful bears, as well as all the people that use this so called medicine. They have no conscience and certainly just a rotten soul. One again, as usual, I feel nothing more than shame to belong to such a despicable species capable of doing this to fellow animals. I remember reading not long ago about a mother bear killing her cub and committing suicide afterwards. All actions taken. Thank you Michelle, this is such an important issue.

Just had one of those..."what do you do when the beds are burning?" moments.

Those that would do this sort of thing NEED to be recycled.

We need to get signatures--there are supposedly 6 million care2 members yet there are only less than 5,000 signatures on this petition! This is without a doubt one of the most inhumane, needless and absolutely horrific forms of animal abuse going on in the world.

The suffering of these poor bears is beyond imaginable! I cannot believe that there are people on this Earth who could commit such cruelty to sentient beings! People who become so detached from animals and look upon them as just something to exploit, become dangerous people as they become heartless and they are not really human anymore. They don't seem to realize that without our ability to empathize and care about other life forms, we might as well be dead because we become more like machines rather than being alive. Because truly being alive means caring, being connected to all your feelings, and being connected to all life forms so that you can feel their fear, anguish, joy and peace! But these people can't seem to feel anything!

Can't even begin to staunch my desire to find these people and do the same x a million to them!!!! We have such vile, evil, inhumane humans who live on planet earth that I wouldn't blame the Great Mother Goddess if she just wiped out most of humanity out of unstoppable anger!!!
