Bear Protection Act (H.R. 3029)
From Brad Josephs - 25 Mar 2008

I did a search on Bear gall market and sure enough there are hunters out there asking around for a market to make some extra money on their bears. An extra 500 dollars or more is great incentive to hunt bears. I hope this law goes through. They say you can sell gall bladders from legally taken bears to dealers such as taxidermists.

The gall bladder story is a sad one. The demand exploded when bear farms and synthesized UDCA went on the market, which should have lessened demand on wild bears. Unfortunately the effectiveness of this medicine is not a myth as it does have real medicinal qualities as an immune booster ect... (not as much as an aphrodisiac).
