Actually, such cruel practices happened more than 20 years ago. According to statistics from the State Forestry Administration, in 2006, China had 68 registered bear farms where about 7,000 black bears were kept for bile extraction. The number of bear farms increased to 98 by 2011, and it is estimated that about 20,000 black bears are kept for bile extraction, Animals Asia Foundation statistics showed.

they take bile from humans, from a tube.. i believe

its obviously a procedure which the body will heal itself

what are the adverse long-term effects of such extractions?

doing a little dripping from time to time is better than winding up on the dinner table

and i think the bears would agree
