After being abandoned in a frozen field in America, a little calf named Hero lost both his back legs to frostbite.

Hero was found by Kitty Martin who runs an animal rescue centre in Texas and who nursed him back to health.

Thanks to Kitty and expert vets, Hero is now walking again with the help of two prosthetic legs.

Kitty plans for Hero to work with wounded soldiers and children with special needs as she believes Hero’s recovery can be an inspiration and encouragement to them.
