"My Bionic Pet"

Hello Everyone!

Not too long ago, PBS premiered this special called My Bionic Pet.  It's a truly cute and heartfelt mini-documentary about animals left disabled without fins, flippers, beaks, or tails due to disease, accidents, or even human cruelty, and how they get a second-chance at life thanks to amazing advancements in engineering and technology to create prosthetics for these animals.

This PBS special exemplifies the sort of human and nonhuman-animal relationship that we have discussed this quarter.  This shows how the science that is helping benefit humans is also helping benefit animals; whereas most of the time humans use science to exploit and conduct scientific experimentation on animals.

I hope you take a glimpse at it while taking that study break; it will help destress!  But it also might melt your heart!
