China: Mother Bear Abused (By Chinese Government Inaction) on Bear Bile Farm Kills Cub and Then Itself – Boycott Chinese Products Until Animal Welfare Legislation is Introduced and Bear Bile Farms are CLOSED DOWN.

Mother bear kills cub and then itself

 

 The Chinese media has reported on an extraordinary account of a mother bear saving her cub from a life of torture by strangling it and then killing itself.

The bears were kept in a farm located in a remote area in the North-West of China. The bears on the farm had their gall bladders milked daily for ‘bear bile,’ which is used as a remedy in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

It was reported that the bears are kept in tiny cages known as ‘crush cages’, as the bears have no room to manoeuvre and are literally crushed.
