1. [+1,425, -23] I can't believe it's a bear farm for the purpose of extracting their gall bladders;;; how are we any different from China? Now that the times have changed, we need to block things like this from being allowed.

2. [+1,162, -13] Could that baby bear have known his future? Seeing the conditions of the cages made me sigh automatically. I remember losing sleep over countless nights after seeing a video of how the gall bladder is extracted from these bears... I can't believe this horrifying practice is still continuing.

3. [+1,076, -9] Humans eat their gall bladders because it apparently contains ursodeoxycholic acid but that can be artificially produced these days for just 20 cents a pill with insurance. Please eat that instead ㅠ

4. [+76, -0] It's extremely painful for the bears when their gall bladders are extracted. It's upsetting having to see these bears bang their heads against the walls and strangle their babies to death... let's please stop this abnormal practice.

5. [+75, -2] How much longer must we be like this... can we please stop torturing animals and abusing them for money!! You only live one life as a human being, why must you live it this way?

6. [+53, -0] I mean, how much longer do you want to live on this earth that you're willing to torture bears and eat their gall bladders to do so??

7. [+41, -0] What did the bears do to deserve this? Let them free!! Look at what your greed is doing to this baby bear!!

8. [+36, -0] How healthy do you think you can get by eating the gall bladder of such a stressed out animal? You need to cut the consumers off so that these factories naturally disappear. Both consumer and seller are less than even an animal.

9. [+34, -0] Enough is enough. You disgusting humans, how can you live with yourselves?

10. [+32, -0] Can't believe this is happening in Korea, this breaks my heart

1. [+3,335, -23] These bears scream loudly from the pain of having their gall bladders extracted. I'm sure any residential area nearby can hear them. This factory needs to be shut down. I remember reading an article about the conservation efforts for the bears in Mount Jiri. Shouldn't that money be spent on saving these bears first?

2. [+1,491, -16] Do people think they will die if they don't eat their gall bladders? Please ban bear farming now.

3. [+506, -8] I feel so bad for them, sigh

4. [+328, -0] It's considered an endangered species so why are so many kept captive on farms? Stop spending hundreds of millions on Mount Jiri and use that money on protecting these bears instead.

5. [+115, -1] This is so sad and upsetting, please ban gall bladder extractions from bears

6. [+103, -2] Why is there a conservation effort for these bears at the same time that permits are being allowed for these factories to exist? People won't die without their gall bladders. The worst virus on the human planet is not the coronavirus but human beings.

7. [+100, -0] All you barbaric fools who eat their gall bladders have no right to ridicule any other culture for what they eat. It makes me tear up to even see these pictures. You don't get to treat an animal like this just because they can't talk back.

8. [+81, -0] When I saw that 119 saved that baby bear that escaped, I thought the article would be a happy ending but they returned him to that hell hole.

9. [+80, -0] These bears are farmed for the purpose of people who purchase their bile. Whenever a customer comes in, they stick a tube in their chest while still alive and extract it so painfully that these bears scream into the skies. Young bears are no exception, and there was one case where a mother bear broke out of her cage to kill her own baby bear while it was being extracted to put him out of his misery. This practice is worse than murder and I don't understand why the government allows it to continue. The bears all go insane in these factories from all the screaming and spin in place all day. Please get rid of all these factories before we all pay the price of such evil!

10. [+57, -1] We have one organization trying to conserve these bears in Mount Jiri and another farming them for gall bladder extractions. What a comedy.

11. [+53, -1] We live in a world with such an abundance of food, why must we torture bears too? Just eat well and exercise, why must you preserve your health by eating gall bladders too?

12. [+48, -2] I could feel nothing but the bubbling rage and sadness within me while reading this

13. [+40, -0] It's moronic to think that eating something extracted from such a stressed animal would be good for your health, no?

14. [+41, -2] The government needs to purchase all these bears and release them in Mount Jiri

15. [+37, -0] Wait, this practice is still going on?? This is animal abuse!! The government needs to step in and penalize everyone! Why is this allowed to still happen? These poor bears!! ㅠㅠ
