Amputee Goose Gets A 3D Printed Leg

This goose is able to waddle once more. One lucky goose has been given the opportunity to waddle again, after receiving a 3D printed prosthetic, according to CNET.

Ozzie was found by Sue Burger, a woman who took in the goose when she noticed he had broken his leg and required amputation. Ozzie tried to get used to life with one leg, but it just wasn't working out for him.

Sue conducted a radio interview about her poor bird, and soon got offers from different printing companies to help out her dear friend.

Eventually, she decided on BunnyCorp in Cape Town, where they took the measurements of Ozzie's stump, and began creating the design for a new leg.

It will take some getting used to, but Ozzie is not the first animal to receive a 3D prosthetic. 

Duck, duck, GOOSE! Go, Ozzie!
