Baby Goose With A Leg Brace

This little guy was found with a broken leg, but vets couldn't convince themselves to put it down, so instead they gave it a bionic leg made with steel pins, nuts and bolts so she could start walking around on her own.

Cathy Jackman, a diver, spotted the tiny blue bird struggling to keep afloat off Brixham in Devon.

She plucked the distressed budgie – nicknamed Captain – from the sea and looked after him until they returned to shore.

She said: "When I first saw him he was flapping and disappearing under the water. He nearly drowned as he couldn't take off or swim.

Nice story with the cute duckling and all, but it seems kinda silly. Maybe if it were an endangered species, I could see the point.
