Black Bear cub #16-1654 update

Dr. Dave and licensed veterinary technician Leigh-Ann took the bear cub to surgery within an hour of her admission. Dr. Dave was able to successfully stabilize the cub’s jaw fracture with an external fixator; four metal pins were inserted perpendicular into the bear’s jaw, then a metal bar was attached to the pins parallel to the bottom jaw.
