China Bear Rescue - Positive Action
Petition Background (Preamble):
farming to an end.
This "China Bear Rescue" is well underway with 118 Moon Bears now in the care of Animals Asia at their rescue centre in Chengdu, China.
The facts on bear farming: The official number of farmed bears in China is 6,992 (less now with 118 in the care of AAF). Bear bile is not
an aphrodisiac - it is an efficacious medicine with a 3,000 year history, but one which is totally replaceable with herbs and synthetics. In the market today, there is an oversupply of
bear bile which is why the farmers are looking for new markets, hence the placing of it in ridiculous things like shampoo and "Bear Bile Soda"!!!! Some bears have been in these terrible cages for up to 22 years. Bear farming
also exists in Vietnam and Korea.
The CWCA and SFA are doing the right thing and paving the way towards the end of bear farming. Money raised from advertising on this petition will go to help the Animals Asia Foundation fund and build the sanctuary for 500 rescued beautiful Moon Bears - a first major step in bringing bear farming to an end
