What is Bear Bile Farming?

Bear Bile farming is a cruel farming system designed to extract bile from the gallbladders of living bears for the used in traditional Asian medicine for thousands of years. It contains high levels of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) known to be useful for treating liver and gall bladder conditions in humans. Despite there are now many readily available herbal and synthetic alternatives with the same medicinal properties, there are still at least 10,000 bears currently kept on bile farms in Asia according to recent official numbers.


Cage after cage of bears subjected to bile extraction

A number of bear bile extraction techniques exist, all of which are invasive and traumatic. The techniques, “free drip” method where the bear suffers a hole in their gallbladder which is continuously reopened, to the insertion of permanent catheters, to locating the gall bladder via ultrasound and extracting bile through a four-inch needle.

This is made even more cruel when the farmed bears are kept in tiny cages, sometimes so small that the bears are unable to turn around or stand on all fours. Often they grow too large to be removed through the cage door upon rescue, and bear the scars of the tight cage bars on their bodies. This not only has a severe impact on their physical health, but also on their psychological well-being.

Despite the availability of inexpensive and effective herbal and synthetic alternatives – and the dangers of consuming bile from sick bears – bile farming continues. Demand for bear bile products comes mainly from China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia and Taiwan. Bear bile products are also found in Australia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Singapore, the US and Canada.

Embark with us now on this journey to help the bears! All profits from this campaign will go to Animals Asia’s work of reducing demand by promoting herbal and synthetic alternatives, working with authorities to increase public awareness through education and monitor the trade of bile and bear parts within China and Vietnam and to rescue and rehab bears at our sanctuaries.
