I have something of an unusual prayer request today. Usually as Catholics we are supposed to pray for other human beings. But I am asking you to pray to Jesus, Mary, St. Francis, whoever, to help “Bile bears”
These are asian black bears that are forced to live in small, coffin like cages, and have their bile extracted from them. Some bears have to live their whole lives in these cages!
These bears are highly intelligent. One Mother bear, after she escaped from her cage, strangled her cub with her paw, and ran into a metal door repeatedly, purposely killing herself, so neither her nor her cub would have to go back to the cages…
Here is some more description animalsasia.org/index.php?UID=MZE3QCQ4RPV
If you could manage some prayers, that would be great.
