Buttercup the duck was born with a backwards foot.
Mike Garey, of Feathered Angels Waterfowl Sanctuary, Buttercup's home, was told by a vet that the foot should be amputated.
So that's exactly what he did.
Buttercup is all healed up and doing fine now, but

Introducing the perfect pet for stoners!
This is the fist aquarium made just for jellyfish! Other salt water aquariums will suck up the creature thats 90% water. But now, thanks to Kickstarter donors designer Alex Andon has created a way to keep your floating friends as pets.
Huffington Post explains how the tank works:
The Desktop Jellyfish Tank pulls water through a layer of rocks at the bottom of the tank. The water is then pulled up one side of the cylindrical tank to the surface. It then goes back down the other side and is sucked up once again by the rocks.
What's cooler than having an exotic pet? Having a tank that lights up with multii-colored LED lights! Yeah, no one is trying to hide the stoner appeal.
Each fish will cost $39 and will be shipped overnight from the company’s breeding center. You can also buy frozen plankton from Jellyfish Art, which is what the little critters dine on. A $350 donation will get you a spot on the waiting list.
Click HERE to get your spot and get more information on this entrancing new pet.

We are pleased to introduce Nakio!
He is the first dog to be fitted with a complete set of bionic paws that work naturally to allow him to run, jump and even swim.
Nakio received the paws after his own were severely hurt from stepping into an ice puddle as a puppy. The prosthetics were designed and fitted in a pioneering procedure by Martin Kaufmann, founder of Orthopets.

Animal rights protesters won South Korea! (Sorry Lindsay)
The country's capital city has told Italian fashion house Fendi to remove all fur items from a show of its Fall/Winter collection due to complaints from animal rights groups, officials said Monday.
A spokesman for the city government said:
"We have received complaints from animal rights activists and saw negative public opinion on the Internet… we can't let such a controversial thing be staged at a public property."
The Italian firm said city officials last week threatened to cancel the event unless all fur items were removed from the catwalk.
Fendi's statement said the design house had difficulty understanding the decision and had spent months preparing. It added it would continue negotiations.
