From the Pet News "Board of Elections" - WCLV listeners vote for their favorite story.

WCLV Listeners Chose Lucas as the Pet News of the Week!

WCLV listeners chose the story of Lucas, an African penguin at the San Diego Zoo. Lucas has a degenerative disease called Bumblefoot, which made walking difficult. A New Jersey-based company took an impression of Lucas's feet and created Neoprene and rubber prosthetic boots so he could walk. It was a success, and so was the Pet News of the Week vote. Please vote again next Friday beginning at 7:25 a.m. EDT on WCLV/Ideastream Public Media.
