ACTION ALERT: Ban Bear Farming and Torture!!

Animals  (tags: moon bears, bears, bear bile farms, imprisoned, tortured, asia, animal welfaer )

- 2980 days ago -
The moon bear is a threatened species in Vietnam and other South Asia nations, and a gruesome trend is making matters worse. Moon bear "farmers" keep thousands of the bears caged, then crudely extract bile from their gall bladders with a syringe to sell

I signed the petition. With all due respect to Asian medicine, the superstitious stuff needs to be banned. And let's fight the animal parts that are used as aphrodisiacs. Viagra is getting affordable to everyone. ))))

if a photograph could speak...that poor Moon bear just looks tortured, alone and as we can see caged, and all for what? their Bile, how disgusting, what is wrong with these people? we are living in the 20th Century, but people who live in these parts of the world are still living in the mediEVIL times, with their so called beliefs and myths, if they want better health, then eating animal parts, or their organs, or in this case their bodily fluids will not help with any of their medical problems, or fertility, or whatever reason they make up thinking that these majestic animals bodies can make them healthier, there is good medicines available for whatever ails these people, and i wish they could realise that if they want god health then why dont they eat good fresh food, and go to see a good doctor if they have any medical problems, why they still believe this utter rubbish that animal parts can make their lives better makes them still not civilised as human beings, or for their country, if only our goverments could advise them, stop your barbaric treatments of all of your animals, otherwise you will not be welcome as our friends, i live to see this day when this planet will value life, ALL LIFE, ..and all animals will be left alone to live out their lives as nature intended free and wild, and never to be hurt, abused, tortured, hunted down, caged, or killed ever again..

Can't count how many times I already signed petitions to stop treating bears with such disrespect, so sad that humans can treat other living, feeling beings this way...

Signed and noted. It really upsets me to hear about things like this. I'm currently doing some fundraising in aid of bears.
