I originally thought this bear had it’s eye injured by another bear.After thinking a little more about this shot,I’ve come to a different conclusion.

If this bear had been swiped in the eye by another bear,surly some of the surrounding eye flesh would of been injured as well. After a wound heals,you can see scar tissue.

I see no scar tissue on this bear.So my only conclusion is that this condition must be from a disease?The right socket looks like the flesh is puckering.If this bear can still see through this eye,surely it cannot see very much?

  1. Do bears have an inner eyelid like cats do? My cat has his inner eyelid slightly damaged – the vet thinks it was torn in a fight. Its not as severe as this bear’s but perhaps that’s what going on??
