While I was at the gym, they had CNN's show 'Planet in Peril' on and were focusing on China and how it is a huge consumer of rare/unusual/illegal animals. They said (and showed footage) of the 7,500 bears that are used annually for their stomach bile (which is some type of ancient remedy). The bears are locked in little cages and have a TUBE IMPLANTED in their stomachs that CONTINUOUSLY sucks the bile out of their stomachs...I have truly never seen such a horrific sight...I am absolutely sickened. Before I saw the show, I had no clue that this even happened! I am still baffled and disgusted.
