My little bears acting like little bears… Noel & Barrett – I call Noel my little bear
There are days that I look at animal cruelty issues and a piece of my heart feels like it it is chipping away. It is so sad to see what they do to animals. I do watch and see things terrible forms of animal cruelty that can be avoided. I worked with the Humane Society of the United States for over 9+ years on campaigns such as STOP THE CLUBBING OF THE BABY SEALS which is useless – no one wears seal fur and the seal meat product is not a big commodity – it is so sad what they do there in Canada killing these seals in such a cruel way, PUPPY MILLS – why ? There are so many pups that need homes why are we creating more pups in terrible situations – it makes no sense to me, SHARK TOURNAMENTS – seriously – yes JAWS is scary but why kill sharks ? they are beautiful creatures…. I really don’t get this, and FUR FREE – why do we need to kill animals for their fur – when there are beautiful FAUX FUR alternatives…. I have recently tried to help get people to realize that we need to ban the horse and carriage rides in NYC … that is terrible what they do and how those horses live – It makes me so sad.
I was just shown information on what is going on with the MOON BEARS in Asia and looked over some of the footage and my heart hurts.
More than 10,000 bears are kept on bile farms in China, and official figures put the number suffering the same fate in Vietnam at about 1,200. The bears have their bile extracted on a regular basis, which is not only used in traditional medicine but also in many ordinary household products.
Bile is extracted using various painful, invasive techniques, all of which cause massive infection in the bears. This cruel practice continues despite the availability of a large number of effective and affordable herbal and synthetic alternatives.
