Add grizzly bears to the list of mammals who hate going to the dentist.
A 538-pound fella named Albert recently underwent a root canal and a tooth extraction.
The bear lives at Lions, Tigers and Bears animal rescue sanctuary in Alpine, California. The veterinarians involved have performed oral surgery on many different animals, including a tiger at the sanctuary.
Specialists at the sanctuary say, other than this dental dilemma, Albert is in “excellent health.”
