Motherboard cpu socket pins damaged

It is difficult to see, but the pins on this motherboard are bent at the top-left-middle of the first picture. Not all pictures are oriented the same. Would it be possible to do this by installing the CPU, being that the port is slotted to prevent this? It seems rather strange to me that only a very specific group of pins are bent. What kind if problems would be expected if a socket had these bent pins? Would it even run?

Any response is greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
