Betty Is The First Gosling To Get A Bionic Leg

Posted Jul 13, 2009

Betty the gosling goose was found orphaned and with a broken leg in Watermead, Buckinghamshire.  Veterinarians did not want to put the baby goose down so they decided to perform the world’s first gosling bionic leg operation.

Betty was given a leg brace with steel pins, buts, and bolts.  At the Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital, the gosling has already started walking again with the help of the brace.  Betty is expected to check out of the hospital in about 3 weeks.

Its a good thing Betty’s vet doctor was not a quack (pun intended).
