The bear named Marley was rescued from a park in Georgia in the United States. The animal had two fractures to a leg due to abuse.
Marley was held in a park with 17 other bears where they were kept in a narrow and dirty pit. The veterinary team rescued and operated on him. The surgery was a success.
CSU veterinarians usually see many large animals, but few bears. Doctors at the veterinary hospital are hoping to give Marley a new life after the surgery.
The university has shared a video of Marley's surgery showing the amazing work of the surgeons. Since then, Marley is in a safe and supportive place for his development. Rescuers hope that he can live another 20 years.
