The Raleigh News & Observer published a cool photo essay of a Black Bear’s recent arthroscopic surgery performed by veterinarians at NC State. The surgery involved removing small portions of bone from the bruin’s elbow that were creating some irritation and limping. The bear, Yona, is a resident at the N.C. Museum of Life and Science in Durham.
