Moo-ving people toward compassionate living
(Bear - Bile Farming - 08) Varying in length from 5 to 7.5 inches, a catheter was surgically implanted into the bears' gallbladder allowing the farmers to milk the bears each day. During milking, the bears were tempted to lie flat on the bottom of the cage in order to feed from a low tray, thereby allowing the farmer easy access to the bears abdomen and catheter. Often, a metal 'crush' was lowered on top of the bears to force them to remain in this flat position until the farmer was finished. In many cases, the farmer never bothered to raise the crush: Animals Asia said that they were horrified to receive many bears in cages with crushes rusted permanently in the lowered position, pinning the bears flat to the bottom of the cage for years on end.
