  • Hunter mutilated in bear attack has face rebuilt in pioneering surgery news

    A hunter left disfigured from a near-fatal bear attack has had his face rebuilt after undergoing months of surgeries. Lee Brooke’s nose and moustache were “ripped off” his face during the grizzly attack during a hunting trip in Wyoming in October last year. The 60-year-old told FOX 31 he came across an elk he had shot the day before on his excursion, but quickly realised a bear had already claimed the kill. He turned to leave when the bear suddenly attacked, knocking him unconscious. When he woke he found the aggressive animal standing over him. Mr Brooke recalled the shock of seeing his “nose and moustache laid out on the ground”, adding: “Now I knew what was wrong with my face.” He underwent months of surgeries  Credit: FOX31 Denver (KDVR-TV) He explained: “I felt her sniffing my cheek. I felt her whiskers. “I should’ve bled to death right there. I should’ve at least drowned on my blood.” With blood in his eyes blurring his vision, he managed to reach for a steak knife in his pocket, later joking: “I don’t know that I would have been brave enough to stab her if I could see her. “I had to lean in to stab her in the head. So I was [that] close to her nose.” He spent around an hour alone in the woods before help arrived, recalling: “I said ‘Lord I could do with a little help about now!’” His brother-in-law, George Neal, eventually found him and remembered seeing Lee’s torn-off nose and upper lip on the ground. He grabbed the body parts and stuffed them in Lee's pocket before calling 911. He said the bear “ripped his face right off”. A wild bear (not pictured) attacked him in Wyoming Credit: AP Mr Brooke underwent months of reconstructive surgery at the Swedish Medical Center’s Burn and Reconstructive Unit in Colorado. Dr Benson Pulikkottil and Dr Lily Daniali removed a fibula and a flap of skin from his leg, then used the bone and skin to rebuild his face. Doctors will eventually reconstruct his nose, possibly even using a part of his own nose they managed to preserve. “They were so confident and compassionate and communicated really well back and forth,” said Mr Brooke. “Everybody was phenomenal. They built me up and never let me down. They’re the best of the best.” Woman’s yoga session interrupted by bear licking her neck

  • Dog 'dies of a broken heart' after being dumped at airport by her owner news

    A dog who  was abandoned by her owner at an airport has died of a "broken heart". The dog, called "Nube Viajera'' or Wandering Cloud by the vets who treated her,  spent a month wandering around the terminal at Palonegro airport near Bucaramanga, Colombia hoping to be reunited with her owner. According to witnesses, she sniffed people at the airport before giving up the search and lying listlessly in a corner of the terminal. Nube viajera  Credit: CEN Both passengers and workers offered the dog, who was no more than two years old, food - but she refused to eat. "It is presumed that she had an owner and a home and that they abandoned her because the dog never left the airport," Dr Alejandro Sotomonte told Noticias RCN. Clearly malnourished she was taken to a shelter after somebody alerted an animal rescue group, the Mirror reported. By then the once healthy dog was so weak she was barely able to stand. According to vets despite being given food and medicine via intravenous injection, the dog's health deteriorated further into sadness and depression before dying.
