So, I read the OP, and I thought of my own kids, and I just finished a big juicy steak at lunch time, and I had a lump in my throat thinking of that poor mother bear. I was actually considering vegenism!
Then a more rational thought hit me.
Wouldn't that same bear have held down a baby rabbit and torn out its stomach, and began to eat it even before it was dead? I have seen it in every predator from housecats to mountain lions. A predator will pick on the youngest and weakest, and hold it down, and chew off a flank, or dig in for the juicy liver even before the animal dies.
That poor poor bear, would have no problem being the one with a captive meal in a cage, and taking advantage of it.
Nature is nature, just be happy we happen to be at the top of the food chain. It hasn't always been this way, and it might not always be this way! Don't feel too especially bad for the bear, but then again, don't wail and cry when a bear catches you out a little too far from home one day and decides to have a free meal from a relatively defenseless human! Tis the law of the jungle. Eat or be eaten.

I’m sorry Jay. I shouldn’t have worded it the way I did. My wording was very poor and I apologize. I guess more of my frustration is with the Chinese government that with the people. The people are one of the hardest working groups in the world. I also have extreme admiration and respect for the new rise in Christianity in China, and the people who continue to worship and follow what God they believe in despite what the government tells them. This is courageous. Government is the evil party here. And when I’m saying that, I’m resorting to the lack of freedoms, restrictions, and human rights that China is so poor in conducting. The people, courageous.
