Turtle comes back fast and furious after rat attack



A 90-year-old turtle, Mrs. T, had her front legs tragically bitten off in a rat attack. But now she’ll never have to slow down again thanks to some clever engineering.

Mrs. T’s owner, Jude Ryder, was horrified when she checked in on her hibernating pet, only to see that her front legs had been bitten down to the elbow. There was little to be done to save her legs and Ryder didn’t think she could spend any more after running up a $1000 vet bill.
