Vets Come Up With Creative Way To Help Mend This Mockingbird's Twisted Feet

Wildlife conservationists have to be compassionate, patient and creative, because many of the problems they run into aren't easy to solve.

But ingenuity is one of our greatest assets, so we're often able to find solutions and save animals that would otherwise die a needless death.

The veterinary staff at the California Wildlife Center recently rescued a mockingbird with feet that were knuckling bad, leaving the poor bird unable to perch or walk without damaging its feet.

So they came up with a creative solution to this mockingbird's bad foot problem- little snowshoes to help retrain the bird's feet to open and allow the broken bones to heal.

And now the shoes are off and that lucky little mockingbird is on the mend!
