Suicide on the Bile Farm

Suicide on the Bile Farm

I had never heard of an animal committing suicide until I heard about the bear bile farming industry. As far as I know, suicide is an extremely uncommon occurrence in the wild. According to this recent article (follow the link – published October 11, 2013), a mother bear on a bile farm killed herself and her cub, strangling the cub and then running into the cage wall headfirst in order to end her own life. If that is not horrifying I don’t know what is.
