Under Threat

Asiatic black bears are threatened around SE Asia by poaching for the illegal wildlife trade and the bear bile industry.

Bear bile farming is a horrific trade that continues in China to this day, threatening Asiatic black bears all around South East Asia. The bears are kept in tiny cramped conditions where bils is painfully extracted from their gall bladders.

Lucky for this guy, he inhabited a reasonably side naturalistic enclosure near Kuang Si falls, a rescue center for bears and a place to live the rest of their lives in peace.
