Alas, the treatment of the bears seems to be extremely cruel
I am quoting part of a sentence from an article
from a Dutch journal of medicine [NTvG]
People cannot even fast for a few weeks, or they already get stones (NTvG 2004;148:174).
A bear quietly naps for a few months without eating anything and that bile just stands there still, without petrifying or etching the bile ducts. So there must be ‘something to be gained’. [Yve Smulders]
