Did you know that bear bile is used as medicine in some Asian countries? While, that fact might not seem very dangerous at first, you need to realize that there is a huge demand for this ingredient, almost industrial demand, which means that there is industrial supply! What does that entail? Well, that means that there are thousands of bear bile farms across Asia where workers harvest, if we can even use the word harvest, the bile from bears. They keep them locked, and caged, and they forcibly extract bile from them!
Tuffy, was rescued in September last year and the vets barely managed to rehabilitate him after years of having his bile extracted. His gall bladder was so damaged it had to be removed! Look at him now! After years of dehydration he has his own pool! It would be an understatement to say he’s enjoying it.
