The traditional medicine industries profit from subjecting wild animals like bears and lions to captivity, fear, pain, and premature death.
In China, more than 20,000 bears are cruelly exploited for their bile when plant-based and synthetic alternatives are already available.
Many bears suffer for decades - every day enduring the agony of having their own bile drained out of a permanent wound. Bears are sentient beings; they are intelligent and curious. There is no excuse for the pain and fear they go through.
