|Help us end bear bile farming in ChinaMore than 10,000 bears are kept in tiny cages on bile farms in China. The bile, which is used in traditional medicine, is extracted using various painful, invasive techniques, all of which cause massive infection in the bears. The farmed bears are starved, dehydrated and suffer from multiple diseases and malignant tumours that ultimately kill them. They can live like this for up to 30 years. This cruel practice continues despite the availability of many effective and affordable herbal and synthetic alternatives.

“We, the undersigned, congratulate the Chinese Government for closing down bear bile farms and releasing bears into Animals Asia’s care. We are, however, concerned about the slow pace of the rescue and the lack of progress in ending this barbaric industry. Please make this issue a priority by setting a firm date by which bear farming will end in China. In the meantime, please promote the use of herbal and synthetic alternatives to bear bile.”
