Ha Long bear bile tourism

A new twist to violation of Vietnam’s wildlife protection laws involves luring tourists to bear farms in Quang Ninh and some other provinces where they are encouraged to violate the law by buying and consuming bear products.

Tourists are given a tour of the farm then assembled in a classroom where they witness bile being extracted from a bear and are offered to taste bear bile wine.  Before leaving, they may purchase bear products in violation of the law.  Many of the tourists then violate CITES laws by smuggling the products out of the country when they leave.
