Black Bear cub #16-2023 update

On October 14, Dr. Peach darted and anesthetized Black Bear cub #16-2023 for a series of radiographs to check on how the bear’s broken limbs were healing. Dr. Peach was dismayed to find that the bear’s broken femur was not healing well; there was little evidence of the bones bridging and callusing over the fracture, despite the presence of the plate on the fractured bone. The bear’s elbow — the initial primary concern — is healing well, despite the prolonged surgery and high risk of damaged growth plates.
