Shouldn't that be: don't buy fur from ANYWHERE?
No fur. Period.
(BTW, that star is from me. )
Unfortunately, some bear farms treated these animals cruelly in past years, piling them into tiny cages and extracting the bile using inhumane methods with implanted tubes and metal catheters. The Chinese government shut down many of these farms and introduced standards to protect the bears. To ensure that the bears are in no pain, Gui Zhen Tang says it employs a method called “no-tube drainage” to harvest the bear bile. In fact, the local ministry of pharmaceutical health designated the company’s base a “bear gall demonstration research base.” The company was also involved in drafting two industry standards for black bear breeding and bear bile processing and storage.
