Rescued Calf Gets New High-tech Prosthetics


    Rescued Calf Gets New High-tech Prosthetics 
         
 “The 600-pound English Charolais calf known as Hero became what may be the nation's only double-amputee calf with prosthetics on Wednesday when fitted for a new pair of high-tech devices attached to its back legs. It's the latest step in a year-long effort that has taken Hero's caretaker, Kitty Martin and the animal from Virginia, where she rescued it last year from an Augusta County farm where it succumbed to frostbite that claimed its hooves, to Texas. Animal surgeons at Texas A&M University treated Hero for several months and affixed the initial prosthetics that the calf now had outgrown.
