|How much can you bear ?|
As an animal lover I am always sad to hear about the poor living conditions which animals all around the world sadly endure. Vietnam is a beautiful country in South East Asia that I have always wanted to visit. Yet I never knew that bear bile farming is a practice which currently takes place in Vietnam. Where bile and other parts which belong to bears are extracted (from the bears) to be used in traditional medicine. This is a lucrative business but as a consequence around 1,300 bile bears endure miserable lives. Where these bears live in cramped metal cages in Vietnamese farms and private backyards.
FOUR PAWS are calling on the Vietnamese government to take the necessary measures to end bear farming. “To be able to send a strong message to the Vietnamese government, FOUR PAWS aims to bring the voices of 1 million people across the world who have signed the petition to the Vietnamese government”, states Kieran Harkin, Head
of International Wild Animal Campaigns at FOUR PAWS. “This will help deliver an unprecedented message that now is the time to finally end bear farming for good.”
appropriate environment. The new bear sanctuary will soon
open its doors to the first bears in urgent need of rescue.
