    A badly injured seagull was saved after its wounded leg was amputated and replaced with parts from a Barbie doll.

    Local 6 News reports the seagull was found by a yacht crew in the city of Antalya, Turkey, with a leg that was on the verge of gangrene.

    The crew, apparently inspired by peg-leg pirates, amputated the leg and created a new one with the leg of a Barbie doll and a big Barbie doll hand as a foot.

    The seagull, who they have called Martha, has made an incredible recovery and is now walking, and even running, around the boat on the new leg.
