Little Injured Bird Given Tiny ‘Snowshoes’ To Get Back On Its Feet

The good people of the California Wildlife Center (CWC) came to the rescue of a mockingbird with a foot disease that made it difficult for the poor bird to wander, perch, or grab things.

Rescuers simply crafted the bird a pair of tiny “snowshoes.”

“We needed to train her feet back to how they should be,” CWC veterinarian Duane Tom told The Dodo. “Essentially, we used pieces of cardboard to tape her toes into their proper position. It usually takes a week or two of wearing the snowshoes before their feet are back to normal.”
