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.
