An article from 2013, but the practices of "milking" and poaching for bear bile continue throughout Asia. CITES lists the Asian black bear in Appendix I, meaning that the bear is one of the most endangered species in the world, threatened with extinction. Trade in them or their parts is illegal. Yet, the bears continue to be farmed and poached, even though there are herbally-derived and synthetic alternatives to the active ingredient found in bile, UDCA.
