In traditional Korean medicine, the gallbladder of the moon bear has great healing powers. Although there is no modern medical evidence that proves this cure is true, some South Koreans still eat the organ to treat diabetes, heart disease, and liver problems. People also make a stew from the bear’s claws that they think will give them extra strength. As a result, only a few moon bears still exist in the wild in South Korea.
