Accidents happen to animals as well where they might find their limbs unusable or removed. In such circumstances, humans would find prosthetic limbs to help them complete their primary functional demands. But so rarely, animals get a second chance in life with prosthetic limbs.
Here are some of the incidents where these animals lost their legs. And fortunately, got fitted with the best quality prosthetics to support their life.
A 48-year-old elephant who would help out to carry heavy weights lost her limb during a mining accident. She was fitted with a prosthesis leg that helps her continue with work.
Swimming in the water of Florida, Winter had an accident with some crab being stuck in the buoy lines back in 2005. She was fitted with a prosthetic tail that helps her swim as she did before and she's now a happy dolphin.
She lost her beak, the most primitive part of a bird that helps in eating and drinking when a bullet almost hit her head.
It helps her drink and eat without any worry.
Oscar met with a harvesting accident that ended up slicing off of his hind legs and losing a lot of blood, nearly dying. Oscar was the first cat to receive prosthetic limbs that would help to grow skin around the implants relating to an umbrella like formation over the implant.
