Tilly the Goose Gets Prosthetic BilI After Incredible Surgery
This goose is one lucky duck.
Tilly, a goose in Britain tore off the lower portion of his bill in an accident when he was six months old. He managed to use his tongue as a sort of replacement for the next several years, but the issue recently needed to be addressed when he could no longer use his tongue to eat, so his owner took him to animal surgeon Andy MacGregor.
MacGregor and a human dentist worked together to create a prosthetic device that Tilly will learn to use as a bill. The good news is after Tilly adjusts he’ll be able to eat totally normal once again.
