Baby giraffe gets leg braces fitted to fix limbs bending the wrong way

A three-month-old giraffe calf was fitted with leg braces in California after being born with an unusual disorder that caused her legs to bend the wrong way.

Staff at San Diego Zoo Safari Park feared that 5ft 10in newborn Msituni could die if they didn’t immediately correct the condition which could prevent her from nursing and walking.
