World's First Bionic Gosling

What's good for the goose is good for the... well, everyone. When a two-week-old gosling with a broken leg was brought into Tiggywinkles (yes, we are serious) Animal Hospital in Buckinghamshire, England, the attending veterinarians couldn't bring themselves to euthanize her.

Instead, they decided to outfit the goose with a bionic leg -- a first for geese according to the Telegraph (though falcons and condors have already received similar operations). After fitting the little lady, whose name is Betty, with a leg brace, the doctors rejoiced as she soon thereafter began waddling again. Hoping to return her to the wild within the next month, doctors are just pleased to have made Betty the Goose newly bionic. [From:]
