Your right, it is illegal to sell bear parts.

I think he had him destroy it since no one wanted to own upt o who wanted it, why and who pulled it out

The bile inside the bladder plus the bladder itself can be worth thousands of dollars on the black market for use in the Asian market for medicinal purposes.
This is a major problem for our black bear population in the U.S. I remember seeing shows about this probably 10-15 years ago. They were poaching bears in the smokey mountains.
That is why it is illegal in many states, including here in Illinois to sell, buy, trade, or barter any part of wild animals or birds. I remember a local man recently getting busted for selling wild turkey feathers on Ebay.
