Frost bite from last winter?   Crushed under a rock? :dunno:  Looks like the toes died and fell off or were chewed off.

I'm goin with crushed/cut off by a rock. Maybe hit by a big rig? (run over by tire) Even the one remaining toe looks to be broken. Doubtful to be a birth defect as the wounds are unhealed. A snare would normally get the whole foot. I think there would be other signs if it was result of frostbite, (more loss of fur around the toes).

I would guess some type of injury whether it be rock smashing or a tendon issue that led to the dragging  of the toes  infection probably set in and became painful leadeing to the bear performing surgery on himself.  Tendon issue are common in hunting dogs, greyhounds, and animals that cover rugged terrain at high speeds.  It's kind of like the people you read about that have to cut off one of there limbs to escape a rocklside or accident. Humans / Mammals's are capable of performing incredible acts of self mutilation when they sense it is the only way they are going to survive.

The reason there are so many Ruger upgrades is because they're necessary.

I would suspect a snare that didn't work properly, that wire can be nasty, or a snare used for smaller game such as a beaver or something, and he got his paw stuck...
