Коррупционный скандал в Южной Корее -

Выдержки с сайта http://www.moonbears.org/: "Выдержки с сайта http://www.moonbears.org/: " .... The Korean Moon Bear, also known as the Asiatic Black Bear, has a diet consisting chiefly of fruits and vegetables, honey, and insects. They are regarded as being of no danger to humans unless threatened. ... They are an endangered species and in 1982 were declared by the Korean Govt as protected species number 329, Cataogoty1 under CITES. Category 1 means Legislaton which meets all the requirements for implementing CITES. ...

... there are currently 1,140 bears at around 60 Korean bear farms most of which treat the bears with extreme cruelty.


1981 - Just one year before the declaration of Moon Bears as a protected species, the Korean Agriculture Department imported 493 bears - mostly Asia for breeding and export.

1985 - The import of bears was then banned only four years after the same Govt officials began importing the bears. The main reason for this is that other countries began banning bear imports, making Korea look bad. Bear farmers were allowed to slaughter bears for oriental medicine as compensation for import ban and the decline of the legitimate live bear export market.

Government policy changed dramatically from farming to breed towards farming for slaughter. Still, the regulation does not allow for the draining of bile from live bears though this practice is believed to be widespread and not policed.

1993 - The Korean Govt joined CITES [Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species of Fauna and Flora], which outlaws the sale of bear gall bladder.

1999 - The Environment Department takes responsibility for bear farms from the Agriculture Dept.

2005 – Another policy change, this time under pressure from community groups. The Bear Farm Administration Index is introduced, providing guidelines for the proper handing of bears in captivity.

2008- The maximum age for slaughter of bears is reduced from 24 years old to just 10 years old. The Environment Department does not monitor bear farms to ensure these guidelines are being followed.

Moreover, the department does not keep a record of the actual number of bears now being held in the farms. There are no regulations providing for any specific method of slaughter, and there is a widespread belief that the bears are killed inhumanely. All of these conditions are against CITES agreement.

THE POLITICS

These bears are killed for oriental medicine, especially for their gall bladder but also for their meat and feet. Customers regularly visit the farms to select their own bear for slaughter.

A bear gall bladder sells for up to $20,000 in Korea. Mr. Kim, Muung- an ex Chairman of the Korean Bear Farms Union argues that deregulation will allow farmers to compete with imported bladders from China. China, Russia and North Korea have huge bear farming industries.

The Korean Union of Bear Farms insists that what is happening outside of Korea, namely a rising number of bans on endangered species, is not relevant to Korea as the bears are born in captivity.

However, the further liberalisation will only encourage Koreans to believe other wild animals can be killed for commercial use.

According to reports on oriental medicine there is over speculations about bear’s gall bladder being extra effective to cure human liver problem, it also can be replaced by over 100 other different herbal formulas.

It is clear that the number of bears killed in Korea exceeds what would be possible if regulations were being followed. Green Korea reports that 38% of oriental medicine shops in Korea [62 out of 163 shops visited] are secretly selling bear gall bladder and that when shops are generally asked whether they do so they respond with extreme caution.

According to a survey, the majority (87.1%) of Korean people do not agree with bear slaughter for use of gall bladders. And yet the trade continues..

There are legal processes set out for the establishment of bear farms and the sale of bear products. However these are clearly being ignored and not enforced. Advertisements for internet sales for bears and bear breeding are easily found in Korean internet shopping malls.

Visits to 10 bear farms by in 2004, hygiene standards and the condition of bears were both extremely poor. Most bears were in small dog cages – around 1 meter by 2 meters in size. There are frequently up to 10 bears in larger cages.

All bears were showing signs of abnormal behaviour. Some farms were located in the gardens of residential houses or temporary buildings. The "farmers" indicated that there were no inspections by authorities.
CONCLUSION
Just imagine many bears waiting to be slaughtered for their gall bladder, feet and meat, crowded into small and filthy cages being fed pigs food on a daily basis. In the West, activists protest against similar treatment of battery hens. Here we are talking about a protected species, and one of the world’s most magnificent animals. Nothing is being done by authorities to stop the trade in Korea.

The cruellest thing for this animal – remember this is the animal meant to be the mother of the Korean nation - is that they cannot live in the wild. Bears hibernate in their natural environment and the need to do this is indelibly implanted into their DNA. But bears caged at farms cannot hibernate during Korea’s bitterly cold winters. This drives them insane, and activists have seen bears self-harming themselves against hard objects in despair.
