Champa, a 3-year-old Asiatic black bear, has spent most of her life at the sanctuary. She always had a malformed head and interacted oddly with the other bears. Eventually veterinarians diagnosed her with hydrocephalus. That would mean euthanasia in most cases, but because of Buddhist practices and wildlife protection laws, that wasn't an option. So a South African veterinary surgeon stepped up to perform laparoscopic surgery.
