Goose gets a bionic leg in world-first operation
Here is the world's first bionic Goose. The two-week old gosling was found with a broken leg, but vets did not have the heart to put it down.
Instead, they decided to operate on the young creature, named Betty, to give her a bionic leg.
She was fitted with steel pins, nuts and bolts to build a leg brace which soon got her back up and waddling around.
The orphan, found at Watermead, Buckinghamshire, has already learned to walk again at nearby Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital.
