Animal rights group at Causeway Point

Acres is a NGO registered by Singaporean. I happened to be at their booth and flickered at their displays. According to a volunteer, thousand bears were confined within cages in China, Vietnam and Korea, a hole was drilled through their stomach so bile drips down to a 'harvesting' tray below. They are collected for traditional Chinese medicine.

Bears are left to their death, then cut into pieces and parts sold separately.

You have to make sure your bile cannot cure AIDS, or wish you are dead before they find out.
