Korean Paralympic Mascots

Korea is supposed to be hosting the Olypmics and Paralympics next year. The mascots are supposed to be a White Tiger and a Moon Bear. The bear is based off of a bear that is held captive and slaughtered for its gall bladder. The bears are bred and held captive for 10 years and then are killed. There are only about 800 moon bears left that are still being captive only to be killed.
