So check this out. This is another thing they do to the bears to get to the gold of their valuable bile. They have a straight jacket attacked to their bodies to keep them from moving, to make it easier on the bastards who steal the bile and to leave the bears in non-stop excruciating pain. DO NOT BUY ANY CHINESE MEDICINE WITH BEAR BILE IN IT OR ELSE YOU ARE SUPPORTING THIS HAPPENING TO THE MOON BEARS. It is on your back if you buy ANYTHING that contains bear bile.
(And I have another article on the Moon Bears if you want to read more about them just go click on the moon bear category to the right)
Another barbaric method of extracting bear bile from the bears is to clamp a metal jacket around the bear which tightly grips the abdomen and is left on permanently. This is done to keep the bear from moving while the bile is extracted using a catheter and tube. A metal jacket causes excruciating pain in addition to the intolerable and constant pain of bear bile production and extraction. This disgusting jacket is so clamped to poor Caesar that it had to be cut with metal cutters and very gently removed.
Did you know in asian countries they capture these BEAUTIFUL bears from the wild and take them and put them into cages that are just the size of their bodies so that they can stick a tube into their gut and up into their gall bladders to extract bear bile in order to use it for chinese medicines. These bears are tortured in these confining cells, where they are kept in the dark, and starved because the body makes more bile when it has an empty stomach. Can you imagine not being able to move for maybe 30 years? Can you imagine what it feels like having a tube jabbed into you with no pain relief and with an infection growing out of control? This is not necessary and the bear bile can be substituted with other herbs. Please do not support this abuse. If you are purchasing a chinese medicine please make sure that it does not have bear bile as an ingredient. If enough of us say NO TO BEAR BILE then there wont be the demand for it and The Moon Bears will be left alone to live the life they should be living.
Please consider donating to The Moon Bear Rescue which currently has rescued 355 bears with ten thousand still out there suffering mentally and physically and waiting for us to stand up and say NO MORE. http://www.animalsasia.org/index.php?UID=2J0NIOGTVCWA
The first video is some pictures of the bears in cages to give you an example of their captured jail cell lives but the next three show you the journey of being rescued and how the amazing creatures DO snap back, if they dont die from liver cancer or some other ailment. By the end of the 3rd video and on you will be crying tears of happiness and you'll feel a sweet feeling of love and hope in your heart.
