    Friend of mine got a Wv bear last year. He built a cage and dropped it in the pond to clean the skull. Wire screen holes were to big(wove wire) and the k9's/ incisors along with the bottom jaw is now at the bottom of the pond. Any suggestions on fake teeth being bought/ molded?
    Thanks

    I’ve never done anything like that but I’m sure it could be done. I would think it would be about as easy as building a antler back maybe even easier. I’m talking about just the teeth.

    How deep is the pond? Any chance of recovering the missing jaw?

    Possibly I suppose. I built him a sift but water temps has that on hold lol. Maybe 3-4ft under the dock. Pond isn't really clear tho.
