Petition text

The Asiatic Black Bear, also known as the Moon Bear, is one of the most wonderful mammals on Earth. However, they have to suffer big time in China, as they are held captive to harvest bile, a digestive juice stored in the gall bladder. Known as bear farming, the process results in a juice that is sold on the market as a Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Bears are kept in inhumane conditions. The extraction cages are tiny, and bears sometimes are prevented from standing up, in order to ensure a smoother bile milking process. The process is carried out twice a day, while being extremely painful – bear often moan for hours, bang their heads or chew their paws.

Bears also have their teeth or paws removed, just for fun. After bears do not produce anymore bile, usually after a few years, they are brutally killed for their meat.

China, we urge you to stop bear farming right now and send this poor animals in a special sanctuary, where they can be properly looked after and live a pleasant life.
