Oh my, what a sad sad story, it certainly made me cry.
China, even though they are leading a technological revolution, still have a hell of a hurdle to overcome the superstitions of their culture.
They believe bile has health properties, and they also think taking Rhino horn will enhance their sexual prowess.
The tigers are being wiped out for similar reasons.
I think they really have a "small penis" syndrome, and cant understand why they dont just use Viagra these days.
There are foundations that are trying to save the sun bears from this awful fate, so if you are at all able, donate.
freethebears.org and savethesunbear.org
I am off to giveall my animals a good patting now, and probably have another cry.
