3D-printed foot helps Buttercup the disabled duck walk again

In this story, Buttercup is a duck that was born with its left foot turned backwards, which prevented it from walking properly and caused him great pain. Enter our hero, Mike Garey of Feathered Angels Waterfowl Sanctuary. He adopted Buttercup and decided to do something to stop the pain and bring the duck back to as close to a normal life as possible.
