SHARE VIDEO: Cow loses legs to frostbite, so naturally, he gets prosthetic replacements

January’s not even over, but this may qualify as the craziest animal story of 2014, which goes like this:

A cow is found alive, but frozen in a field in Augusta County, Va. last April.

He doesn’t end up on someone’s dinner table. Instead, Kitty Martin, of Selah Ranch All Animal Rescue, takes him in. She names him Hero.

Hero loses two legs due to frostbite he suffered in that field.

He then gets two prosthetic legs, thanks to the folks at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine Large Animal Hospital. He’s now able to walk and they say he’ll only need to go back to Texas A&M for adjustments on the prosthetics.
