Bear Bladders Again in the News

I while ago I brought you this story about how the Chinese extracted bile from bear’s gall bladders to be used in many of their medicines. Evidently this practice is found in many Asian countries, Korea being one of them. In Virginia, they now have a bill before their House on legalizing the sale of bear parts so that older, Korean imigrants can buy bear bladders for their medicine.

How nice!(You don’t think any of these people are more interested in exporting back to their homelands for big bucks do you?)
