Tip-top state thanks to vets
A Brazilian toucan that lost the upper part of its beak while being trafficked has been fitted with a prosthesis made using a 3D printer.
The female bird, named Tieta, was rescued from a wildlife animal fair in Rio de Janeiro, the BBC says.
It is not clear whether she lost the upper part of her beak after being mistreated by animal smugglers or in a fight with a bigger toucan with which she was locked up inside a small box.
It took researchers three months to design the beak but it took only two hours for the printer to print it. The beak weighs approximately 4g and is 4cm long.
Refuse gang pluck pet from cat-ash-trophe
A lucky cat was saved from being burnt alive at the last minute when a pair of eagle-eyed binmen spotted it in their lorry. The fortunate feline, named Melker, looked certain to be incinerated after it became mixed up in a stinking pile of rubbish, the Daily Mirror reported.
But the pair heard the bedraggled moggy’s plaintive meows from inside the garbage compactor in Stockholm, Sweden.
Melker was buried under a pile of rubbish but the team battled through the stench and pulled it to safety.
The binmen spent over half an hour sifting through more than five tonnes of rotting food before finally pulling the cat to safety.
Bekir Mercil, part of the team that saved the cat, said: “If we’d not gone to save the cat it would have headed for the incinerator and you can just imagine what would have happened.
“We had a shovel to remove the waste as carefully as we could without doing any harm and a broom to try to get the kitten out.
Eventually we got it out and saved it which was a great feeling.”
They then put the cat in a box and drove him to a nearby animal shelter before a staff member from the veterinary clinic in Vallentuna decided to adopt him.
