Owl Boo Boo has legs put in splints due to rare disorder

A baby eagle owl has had her legs put in splints due to a rare growth disorder.

Boo Boo's legs cannot support her weight, which means she won't be able to fly and she is vulnerable to predators.

She is having ongoing treatment at the vets and will have to live in specially adapted accommodation for the rest of her life.
