There no words that can describe just how disgusting, cruel and appalling this is. When I read things like this, I truly do despair.

Hi Philip, yes, non human animals do not belong to anyone! Moon bears are an endangered species in the wild, predominantly because of the use of their bile, but other reasons as well - all to do with humans!!.

We are the lead organisation on rescuing moon bears from the horrifically cruel farms - in China and Vietnam. Obviously the rescuing is only one part and we also campaign and run education programmes (and we work with other ngos in these areas) to end the trade and change attitudes towards wild (and domesticated) animals, not just in China and Vietnam but across Asia.

Sadly the bears cannot go back to the wild - many have been reared since cubs on these farms, the majority are disabled in some way - missing limbs etc.

In Vietnam the bile industry (hunting, keeping and exploitation of all bear species for the bile industry) is illegal, in China it is not. This is the first time in Vietnam that a farmer has voluntarily given up his bears without wanting compensation - a landmark step as we see it. Please have a look at our website for more information on the moon bears and the organisations involved in this www.animalsasia.org

Thank you Fiona

*Dream begins for 14 bears *
"On Monday, the floor under the surgery table in Vietnam was puddled with blood. But my goodness did Dream, bear number V100, feel so much better once all her rotten teeth had been removed. Vet Kirsty, along with Caz, Rae and team all worked like troopers following the rescue of our 14 bears; bent double over this poor bear as they drilled, manoeuvred and removed teeth that had been the source of constant pain for at least 7 or 8 years." to read more click on the link
