First Bear to go Through Brain Surgery

Champa, an Asiatic black bear has become the first bear to go through brain surgery. Champa had it done to cure her of hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus is a brain disorder when fluids swell your brain from birth. The disorder, since it's in your brain which controls many movements, can ruin many organs. Champa is still recovering from the surgery, but vets have gotten rid of hydrocephalus. This shows that we have the power to help animals. We just have to use that power.
