|Extracting Bear Bile|
Bear farming means to keep certain type of bears locked up in some Asian countries like Vietnam and China. An estimate of about 14,000 bears in both China and Vietnam are being kept captive just for bear bile. Bear Bile is a digestive juice produced by the liver in bears. These bile are often used as medicine and are thought by people that it has greater affect than medicines we use now. Although, it has been said that there are no scientific proof to support this fact. Capturing bears and getting their bile affects the population of bears, putting some on the extinction list.
