Dietmar The German Stork Has A Wooden Leg

Wood you believe it

Pictures show the stork with the wooden leg.


You wooden believe it unless you saw it with your own eyes,

But Dietmar has ruffled feathers in the medical world – by becoming the first stork ever to be fitted with a wooden leg.

The luckless bird lost his own leg flying into a power cable so bird sanctuary bosses in Saxony, Germany, raised 1,000 GBP to have a prosthetic limb crafted by medical specialists.

“He gets on very well in the sanctuary with his new leg but he can’t live in the wild any more so he’s here with us for the rest of his days,” said keeper XXX XXXX.
