Black Bear cub #16-1713 update

Drs. Ernesto and Peach consulted with several orthopedic specialists about surgical repair options for Black Bear cub #16-1713. Surgeons concurred that a technique called a “cross pinning fixation” was in order for this particular type of fracture. Even with this specialized fixation, the bear may still experience long-term issues, including limited flexion in the limb and issues with growth plate development.
