Petition to ban the production of Bear Bile

PETITION: Ban the sale of Bear Bile
Target: President of the People's Republic of China - Xi Jinping

Asian moon bears are being exploited in China. Their populations have plummeted in the last decades, and recent estimates put the worldwide population at just 25,000. It has been estimated that upwards of half their population is currently in captivity, being farmed for their bile, which is used in traditional Chinese medicine. The conditions these bears are forced to live in are atrocious: they spend the majority of their lives in tiny “crush cages,” the sides of which can be moved inwards to restrain them. Their bile is “milked” from them several times a day, by way of permanently implanted catheters that often become infected. The death rate from injury is incredibly high. Mentally, the entire ordeal is so painful that the bears have been known to chew off their own paws. Some even kill themselves by punching themselves in the stomach to stop the pain. It is time for the Chinese government to listen to the will of the people and outlaw bear bile farming immediately. Scientists have scrutinized the health benefits of bear bile, but they have not been able to find any medicinal value in it.

It would help to inform the population not just how animals are harmed, but how much they are being scammed by snake oil salesmen. Plan B, if they don't care about the animals, they might care about their money.

GOD did not create bears to be tortured and tormented. In addition, bear bile farming is of no use.

This barbaric cruelty needs to be stopped NOW. To inflict such cruelty and suffering on helpless animals is inhumane and completely wrong. Countries that perpetrate such cruelty should be subjected to sanctions and boycotted. In the 21st century there is no place for such cruelty. It is heartbreaking to think of these poor bears and the terrible suffering inflicted on them.
