The gosling, named Betty, was found with a broken leg and delivered to the quintessentially-British-named Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital, where she was fitted with a miniature leg brace. The brace seems pretty much like what a human (or a terrifying robo-crocodile) would have for a particularly nasty break: Steel pins and a steel rod hold the leg in place, and Better was apparently walking around in no time. Tiggywinkles (that gets me giggling every time) plans to release her back into the wild in about three weeks. [Telegraph]
