Sad yes but to strangle something or someone you need thumbs
I have no doubt that there are crimes against nature but this is not believable and shows the lack of bear anatomy. A bear could crush, slash, beat, crunch, eat, gash but never strangle its own young... just saying.edit on 11-8-2011 by abeverage because: (no reason given)

Excuse me, but not all us Brits are like that! I am not a beer swilling, MSG consuming, KFC pie eater

What a terrible story...
The fact that these animals are committing suicide should be telling enough. The minute a wild animal can think to create suicide there is something wrong.

I've seem some deer kills by friends of mine and I just could never get excited about seeing an animal covered in its own blood, with compund fractures from where the bullet shattered leg bones

Can I ask why they dont eat the bears also? I think that bile farms are bad and all that but why do they waste the bear as well?
Having eaten bear a few times (not a whole one, obviously) I can say that it's pretty good... so why discard the animal after the bile is taken? Why not kill the animal like you would a cow, process it to be eaten and then use the bile as a leftover?
