This all creatures animal exploitation photo gallery about bears is being presented to show the public the difference between the cute little animals we see in advertising and picture in our minds and the reality that exists in the world.
(Bear - Bile Farming - 20) This is a closer look at one of the Asiatic black moon bears languishing is a cage in a Vietnamese bile farm. Animals Asia reposts that: "Unlike China where bears are "tapped" for their bile, in Vietnam bears are victims of a variety of other cruel procedures. All are caged - some undergo crude surgery to remove bile from their gall bladders every three months which leaves agonizing, infected wounds and often leads to death after 3 or 4 such operations. Other bears have their gall bladders punctured with long needles which then "siphon" off the bile via a pump into a glass bottle. Continuous puncturing of the gall bladder often leads to bile leakage and a slow and painful death from peritonitis."
