That night, when I went to a friend who asked me to take care of a bear farm in his absence, I could not sleep. Mountain wind brought me a strange animal voices, more like the bitter weeping. Suddenly I heard someone pushes the door. I asked, "Who's there?" But I did not answer. I was worried and started looking for something, than you would be protected. Nothing is more suitable than a broom, was not found. With broom in hand, I went to the door and opened it sharply. Caught unawares, I gasped at my feet by the door was a small furry bear.
He looked at me, and in his eyes there was fear and fright. "Come to me" — I opened his arms, bear, slowly swaying, came up to me, put the legs on my shoulders and licked my sweet, warm tongue.
At this time, the house ran several workers. Hearing the noise, bear quickly hid under my bed. The workers have asked me: "We ran a little bear, you see?" "Yes, he's here" — I pointed to the bed. They quickly caught the little bear, roughly dragged him, hung him upside down from a stick and carried away. Looking at the bear, I saw his sad eyes.
When dawn broke, the old foreman Zhang led me to show "bearish estate." In a large hall stood six iron cells, each of them with a bear. I found it strange that each bear an iron abdominal band of stainless steel.
Seeing that I do not understand it, Zhang said to me: "This is to take the bear bile. Now bile costs 300 yuan (about 1300 rubles.) Per gram. " We have come to the same cell, Zhang showed me gesture: "Now begins the intake of bile." Then I saw two strong workers began to pull thick ropes running from the abdominal band that progressively tighter and tighter stomach clutched the bear, causing the bear roared loudly and strongly. More precisely, it looked like the roar of a sob. The pain of a bear's eyes so wide, that it seemed about to burst, and four feet thick fought and scratched the ground. At this point of the tube that is inserted directly into the gallbladder, the green liquid began to drip.
Workers gradually loosened the ropes, but immediately continued execution, again pulling the rope. Again, there was a sharp and loud roaring bear. I saw the bear began to drip tears of pain, but he had no choice but to endure endless torment. How cruel! I was not able to look ahead and walked out. Only then I realized where the strange voice of animals in the night.
When Zhang left me on the street, I asked him a trembling voice, "you have left humanity? It's sentient beings! "Zhang said indifferently:" We have no choice but to work is this, there's an order! "
Calmed down a bit, I asked him how often climbs bile? He said that it all depends on the circumstances, some — twice a day, at least — once in two days. From each bear a year can collect 2000 grams of bile powder for 10 years. " My heart ached with pain. Twice a day for 10 years! That is, if such hellish torture withstand two times a day, every day, day after day, year after year, it turns out — 7200 times! My mind refused to understand.
I said I wanted to leave, to which Zhang told me that soon will need an operation bear, and in such a crucial moment, I can not leave, Director Liu left me in charge.
I had to go back to the room for the bears. Four workers dragged the bear out of fear he roared. When he saw me, he recognized, and in his eyes there was hope. I could not hold back the tears. Suddenly the bear fell down and got on all fours in front of me, begging for mercy. Zhang waved, and the operation began. In order to save, not used during surgery anesthesia.
Teddy bear lying, looking up at the ceiling and began to weep loudly. It was so tragic that caused me pain in my heart, and I thought he was calling for help mom.
At that time, a large bear growled angrily, slowly pushed the lattice their paws and climbed out of the cage. The workers were so frightened that ran in all directions. And I was in shock and could not make the turn, not to mention that somewhere to escape or hide, my feet froze. But the bear did not even look at me, she quickly went to the little bear, trying to unleash thick ropes by his clumsy paws, but to no avail. She just kept hugging a teddy bear and licking his tears and blood. Bear cub crying, as if asking her mother to save him.
Suddenly she began to wail, began to choke the bear with his strong legs. Stifled tears and roaring. When the Bear died, she tore his skin, and eventually tore and pulled iron pipe along with the gall bladder.
It is reported that China, in order to save these poor bears, several foreign nationals, animal rights, and in 1998 created the "Fund for Animal Welfare in Asia (Animalsasia)». The head office is in Hong Kong Foundation, registered in Chengdu branch. Since October 2000, animal welfare advocates of the fund managed to save 280 black bears, but unfortunately, many of them due to serious illness had to do euthanasia.
According to statistics from the fund Animalsasia, now in China there are still thousands of bears, who are treated as harshly for collection of bile. The site of this fund (animalsasia.org) action is saving bears from such suffering.
According to experts, bear bile is not a rare and unique remedy in Chinese medicine, it is quite possible to substitute vegetable or chemical elements. But many in the pursuit of super profits, do not want to give up this cruel way to get a free product.
