Stork Gets Wooden Leg

Life isn't easy for a long-legged wading bird with only one leg, but this one got help to live a relatively normal life. A stork named Dietmar has become the world's first stork with a prosthetic wooden leg. The stork is under the care of a bird sanctuary in Saxony, Germany. Medical specialists crafted a new limb after sanctuary workers raised a £1,000 to finance the venture.
"He gets on very well in the sanctuary with his new leg but he can't live in the wild any more so he's here with us for the rest of his days," said keeper Rolf Arensberg.
