The situation for bears in the world varies drastically from one country to another; in North America they are often killed because they become a nuisance, and they are buried in landfills which is a terrible waste of the meat but also parts that also be of value to people, they are also hunted and killed for trophies harvesting only the hide and head, some people hunt them for meat while many people refuse to even taste it, but people who are fed the meat thinking it is pork can't tell the difference until they are told what they have just eaten, The shortage of food in China has led to the use of every organ and parts of all animals such as feet, heads, and eyeballs that most westerners would never consider eating. Providing that bears are not killed just to harvest the bile and the entire bear is used for food and other purposes I can see no reason to object to the practice; we have to learn to accept each other's cultural practices, but also protect endangered species from extinction. China could be a good market for disposing of unwanted bears instead of consigning them to dumps and landfills.

Sorry, maybe I didn't make myself clear enough; I a m a pro-animal activist...I am against this practice and ny other that supposes produce any type of suffering on animals like forced feeding ducks to rpoduces foie or bullfighting shows, or clubbing seals to obtain their meat!
As for farm animals, I thi nk there should also be controls on the way the animals are kept, fed and raised, no matter this happens where!
