    Amazing Animals With Prosthetics...

    http://news.yahoo.com/heartbreaking-...131000437.html


    We often hear about the cruelty of humans to animals, but what about when people do great things for animals who otherwise would have been condemned to death or a life of suffering due to traumatic injuries? In the story the above link goes to, you will read some heartwrenching, yet eventual heartwarming, stories of animals who have overcome traumatic injuries thanks to human intervention.

    The cause of providing prosthetic limbs to animals is relatively unknown but many shelters are setting up options for donating to such causes. Check with your local shelter or vets about these options if you would like to contribute, or know of an animal in need of such help.

    They call this bionics in the story but it is limited in scope as there are actual cybernetics being used with animals including a cat with a cybernetic jaw as part of it's jaw was blown off by a cruel neighbor who shot the cat point blank in the face... it's not a metal jaw but it is mechanical as it's linked to the nerve in it's remaining jaw sending commands for it to move when the cat wants to eat. It still needs help of course but the fact that it works at all is amazing.

    Have you heard of any amazing animals like these?
