Peacock Who Lost Foot Saved By 3D Printed Limb

A peacock who lost a foot due to severe frostbite and was close to being put down has made a miraculous recover - thanks to a 3D printed prosthetic leg. Wyoming ranch owner, Mike Galloway and his wife Erin, adopted the peacock - aptly named Mr Peacock - from a local animal shelter. He proved an able companion to their existing lonely peacock, who acted as guard birds on the ranch. But tragedy struck during the recent cold snap in January - where temperatures dropped as low as -27C. The peacock was badly frostbitten, and despite being rushed to vets, there was nothing that could be done to save the foot. But kind-hearted viewers of Mike and Erin’s YouTube channel, ‘Our Wyoming Life’, came to the rescue, helping fund and build a 3D prosthetic leg attachment. And now the feathery critter has been given a new lease of life - able to walk, fly and stand unaided.
