Hero The Calf Gets A New Set Of Legs

29 January 2014

A calf has been fitted with a pair of prosthetic hind legs after losing his to frostbite.

Hero the cow was rescued and taken from Virginia to Texas A&M University for pioneering surgery which saw him fitted with the new limbs.

Kitty Martin, the owner of a Texas animal shelter, is now hoping that Hero will be back out on the range as soon as he gets a little less wobbly on his artificial hooves.
