China and animal cruelty

Please read my recent story for Scotland On Sunday about a Chinese firm which uses bile milked from bears' gall bladders in 'health' products. The first link takes you to the front page report which appeared in SOS, the 2nd to the inside report.

Campaigners say around 20,000 Moon Bears are kept in appalling conditions on nearly 100 Chinese bear farms.
