Help End Bear Cruelty in Vietnam and China

In China and Vietnam, bears are enduring torturous conditions— living in tiny cages in captivity. Locals are using them to harvest their bile, a digestive fluid produced by the liver and stored in the gallbladder, used by some traditional medicine practitioners. To supply "bear bile farms," bears are caught from the wild with snares (spring-loaded steel traps). They're forced into tiny cages where they are starved, dehydrated and mutilated so that bile can be extracted. Some bears suffer like this for 30 years. Some are simply left to starve to death in their cages.

Animals Asia is working toward ending bear bile farming by 2020 through focusing on key areas: operating sanctuaries where rescued bears are rehabilitated and cared for, reducing demand for bear bile, monitoring the changing trends in the trade of bear bile and parts, engaging with the traditional medicine community and other users of bile to promote herbal and synthetic alternative.
