- Animals · Wildlife

A RES­CUED bear no longer has a sore head af­ter root canal treat­ment cured his toothache.

Fluff, a 21-year-old 600lb brown bear who was res­cued from a Bul­gar­ian hunt­ing zone five years ago, had den­tal prob­lems caused by mal­nu­tri­tion dur­ing his younger years.

But he’s now on the mend af­ter an­i­mal den­tist Peter Kertesz worked on his mouth for three hours at the Wild­wood Trust na­ture re­serve in Kent.

A spokesman said: “The pro ce­dure was a re­sound­ing suc­cess.”
