A FEW FACTS:
Shark finning refers to the removal and retention of shark fins and the discard at sea of the carcass. The shark is most often still alive when it is tossed back into the water. Unable to swim, the shark slowly sinks toward the bottom where it is eaten alive by other fish.
The people fueling this terrible cruelty are Asians who believe shark fins will give them strength, health and power. The truth is, most sharks contain mercury which renders you impotent and unhealthy.
Asians also keep "bile bears". These are Asiatic black bears kept in "crush cages" which prevent the bear from being able to stand up right or even move at all. The Asian bile farmers stick catheters in the bear's abdomen, and drain the bile. This is extremely painful to the bears. The bile is used in traditional Chinese medicine. Of course, the bile has absolutely no health benefits whatsoever and is just another example of cruel, ignorant Asian tradition.
Officially, 7,600 captive bears are farmed in China. However, there are probably many more subjected to this torture.
Scientists estimate that 100 species go extinct every day!
That's about one species every 15 minutes.
Eighteen red foxes are killed to make one fox-fur coat, 55
minks to make a mink coat.
Orangutans are critically endagered. Sumatran orangutans may become extinct in the next 10 years unless people help to protect them. 100 years ago there were 315,000 orangutans in the wild. Today there are only 60,000. Despite the fact that orangutans are intelligent enough to use tools and clearly feel pain, fear, loneliness and misery, humans still butcher them or leave them orphaned by poaching and destroying their habitats.
