A dauntless dentist has removed a broken tooth from a 600kg (1,322lb) bear with a sore head.
The hour-long operation on three-year-old polar bear Sisu warded off the possibility of a severe infection.
As well as taking out the damaged gnasher, specialist Dr Peter Kertesz created a new canine for the bear.
“Sisu will now have a perfectly functioning tooth for the rest of his life,” said the animal dentist after the procedure in Yorkshire.
