Saving Orangutans 15

Hope undergoes surgery after being rescued in near death condition. With 74 air rifle bullets in her body, she is totally blind. A broken collarbone (clavicle) has pierced her air sac which has subsequently become infected. Therefore, the first priority is to clean the area and remove infected bone and tissue before placing a pin and 6 screws to secure the bone in place. The operation is led by Dr. Andreas Messikommer from Switzerland.
