Moon Bear Marathon

Story

Hi fellow Moon Bear supporters!
 
Last year I trekked the Great Wall of China. 
 
This year I am running the New York City Marathon! 
 
Am I crazy? No! I am dedicated to raising funds for my beloved Moon Bears with Animals Asia to assist them with the vital work they do in eradicating the horrible practice of bile farming and to help the bears find freedom and a new home! 
 
Running the Moon Bear Marathon, I am aiming to raise funds to continue the rescue and rehabilitation of Moon Bears from the extremely cruel practice of bear bile farming in China. 
 

In the bile farms, the bears experience unimaginable horror by spending all day, every day, in tight, coffin-sized cages for as long as 25 years. They are milked daily (usually twice) for their bile in an excruciatingly painful process through crude (often filthy) implanted catheters and are sometimes  fitted with an iron corset to hold the catheters in place.

 

The bears moan and writhe in pain as the bile drains from their bodies. Sometimes the farmers mutilate the bears by breaking their teeth or pulling out their claws (sometimes removing entire digits) so that they can approach them without being injured. 

 

Some cages have a collapsible top that can "crush" the bear and immobilise it better during the process. The bears are denied adequate water and food as this produces more bile.

 

The bile is used in traditional Chinese medicine, even though there are more than 50 cheap and effective herbal and synthetic alternatives readily available.

 

In 2000, after years of lobbying and negotiating, Animals Asia signed a landmark agreement with the Chinese authorities to rescue 500 Moon Bears and work towards ending the barbaric practice of bear bile farming.

 

Officially there are about 7000 bears in bile farms in China, but Animals Asia fear there could be as many as 10,000. 

 

By running the Moon Bear Marathon for Animals Asia, I am raising vitally required funds used for the medical attention and rehousing of the rescued Moon Bears. 

 

Please help me make a difference!

 

I have been a sponsor of Animals Asia since they first started back in 1998 and my dream was realised when I got to meet the bears and the team at Animals Asia in China in May 2012 and saw the great work that has been achieved in Asia first hand!
