This artist by the name of milkdongcomics on Instagram creates illustrations. However, those illustrations are not simply art. They have a heavy message behind them—animal abuse. Many of us don't even think about all the ways animals are being mistreated by humanity. So this artist created a project called "Murder Scene" to shock us back to reality.

The art may be uncomfortable for many people, but it's the sad reality of many critters in this world. Perhaps this art will make us rethink our actions and create a world safe for animals. Many organizations are already working towards that. Consider donating to shelters and institutions working to save animals and give them a better life.

Animal abuse is common all over the world. Research shows that animal abuse strongly connects with abuse against people. The most common animals abused are pets, like cats, dogs, and farm animals.

We asked the artist what inspired him to create these illustrations: "I love nature. All of the creatures on the earth are beautiful! Unfortunately, many of them are endangered, therefore, I created a collection of drawings with messages about animal cruelty. The name of the series is "HEY HUMAN, SEE WHAT YOU DO!?" I wanna convey the message to more people through my art, attract more people to raise awareness about the endangered creatures. This is a serious issue!"

There are many forms animal abuse takes: from hoarding too many animals, breeding them incorrectly, to slaughtering them for fur, horns, and teeth, to even organizing fights and pitting animals against one another. Many would argue that there aren't enough laws to help prevent animal abuse; usually, people responsible for mistreating animals are not persecuted.

The artist shared what inspired him to touch upon such heavy topics: "The natural ecosystem is closely linked with humans, so I wanna try my best to do something for animals, the next-generation, and the earth!"

De-clawing is illegal in the UK, with good reason. It’s like cutting off a cat’s fingertips.

"Every time that animals are killed for human benefits, make me very angry!"

There are many discussions about testing drugs, makeup, and other products on animals. Many companies are going the cruelty-free route—however, many believe it's necessary to ensure the safety of the product.

Humans and animals have been inseparable from one another from the very beginning. Animals are a very important part of our lives, not to mention our planet. So please be considerate and report any animal abuse you see, donate, and help this world become a safer place for them.

"The most important message is when the buying stops the killing can too. Humans must wonder what is their needs, they should able to distinguishing between wants and needs. Desire is not essential. Just think about it before you buy, eat and use!"

Milk Dong Comics shared what he does in life: "I enjoy swimming in the ocean, walking in nature with my lovely doggies. Creating art is my job, Hong Kong is a society under commercial pressure and it is hard to survive in it. I had been employed in different industries for livelihood. For example designer, visual merchandiser, art teacher, sales, customer service, ware-houseman, restaurant waiter, fishmonger, coolie, and many more. However, even after all of it I never give up on art!"

I really hope they stop capturing animals from the wild to show them off in zoos. It's better to appreciate them in their natural habitats and not as part of capitalism. I also hope they stop forcing them to breed.

What is that for? Why would someone want bear bile?

TheGr81sComing
Community Member

Bear bile has been used in traditional Asian medicine for thousands of years. It contains high levels of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) known to be useful for treating liver and gall bladder conditions. However, there are now many readily available herbal and synthetic alternatives with the same medicinal properties

Bear bile is used by some traditional Asian medicine practitioners for the ursodeoxycholic acid it contains which is used in treating gallbladder and liver ailments. The bears are kept in captivity to "harvest" the bile their livers produce and their gallbladders store. Surgical "harvesting" causes severe pain, infections, and suffering to the bears although some purveyors install permanent ports from the gall bladder to the outside to siphon off the bile as it becomes available. It's a horrible life for the bears. Asian black bears are dwindling in numbers due to humans parting them out so unless this trade is made enforceably illegal, the purveyors will be looking to exploit other types of bears, like the American black bear. You would think the acid could be synthesized in a lab instead of imprisoning and torturing bears.

http://tamdaonp.com.vn/ this is the link for the bear rescue centre in tam dao, Vietnam. They rescue sun and moon bears and educate people. The bears are kept on farms because of their bile or they lose their paws in traps because paws are used for traditional soup. It's vietnamese with English, French and German translation available on the website.

Bears don't make gallstones since they hibernate. Their bile composition doesn't precipitate which is why it is thought that it can help with gallstones in human. Hence the medication name is URSAdiol... ursa as in bear. Cholecystectomy and dietary changes are way more affective, not to mention less horrendous than caging a bear stealing its bile.

this thing of traditional Chinese medicine is becoming a serious problem for the whole world. they can be treated as they wish, but bear bile, tiger's penis and paws, rhino horn, turtle carapace, seahorses, shark fins, snakes, monkey heads, skulls of gazelle, the mouse cubs used to make a wine, the lizards, are all ingredients of oriental medicine, which is disinterested in the animal which is slaughtered or defaced only for these beliefs. and there is no scientific evidence on the real functionality of these medicines.

Thank you, Kikka io. I made a partial list above of some of the animals used in Chinese medicine and what for, but not all of them. You added several more altho not what they were supposed to be used for. don't know if you happen to know that, do you?

They use bile from various animals and sell it digestive supplements.

It absolutely amazes me how many animals--even endangered animals--suffer and die because of "traditional Asian/Chinese medicine" (most of it anecdotal, useless at best, harmful at worst, and entirely deadly to every animal involved.) Over 1000 plants and 36 species of animals are used including tiger, rhino, leopard, black bear, musk deer, and sea horses. A brief look (if you're interested) shows that the bones of tigers are used in wines and plasters to treat arthritis. Altho only 5 000-7000 estimated to live in the wild, China has est 5000 in farms. The price of the arthritis medicine increases 50% if it contains rhino horn and/or leopard bones. (They have also been known to use dog, cow, goat and mole rat if tiger is not available). Rhinoceros horn is supposed to treat fever and convulsions even tho rhinos are critically endangered. Black bears are kept in farms and have their bile drained via catheter which is painful and sometimes lethal. It supposedly treated liver ailments and headaches. **LET ME SEE IF I CAN CONTINUE BELOW**

The musk in musk deer is used to promote circulation , treat skin infections and abdominal pain. 100,000 deer/yr are used for this. sometimes muskrats and civets are used. Sea horses (35 different varieties) are used for kidney issues, circulation and impotence. 20 million sea horses/yr or approx 500 tons are used annually for these anecdotal "traditional" remedies. And there are others. It has been going on for thousands of years and, unless someone can get through to them, it will continue for thousands of years more, with so, so many animals needlessly being farmed, or poached then tortured and killed for this. It is horrible. Absolutely horrible. Thank you for listening to my informational rant.

All that traditional medicine of people XY is usually neither traditional nor medicine, but a fucked-up enterprise on every level you may imagine - that crap don't work, best case is it does nothing. All those sugarbowl-fans here who have a heart for "the knowledge of ancient chinese" could just ask themselves if they wanted to live in ancient china. I guess not ... the evil west, evil science, evil civilization ... just is the first to ever bring up an animal rights movement - if that is no improvemet over any alternative that is promoted so strongly ... but then, again - what to expect from a world who trought mother teresa was among the best humans who have ever lived, with nothing in their hand to prove the point, but tons of evidence against? Fuck all that. Reason and reason alone is worth being believed!
