Prosthetic leg found in beaver dam, returned to owner
WABENO, Wis. (AP) -
A man and his prosthetic leg have been reunited after the lost limb was discovered sticking out of a beaver dam by two canoers.
The Wisconsin Journal Sentinel reports that Elliot Fuller and Jason Franklin spotted the leg while paddling between a pair of lakes near Wabeno in Forest County on Thursday. Fuller says they thought it was part of a corpse until they got close enough to pull it out.
A quick search on Craigslist yielded an ad from Mark Warner, who said he lost a prosthetic limb after his canoe tipped during a July fishing trip. The Green Bay man says he wasn't overly worried about it because it wasn't his "everyday leg."
Fuller and Franklin returned the leg on Friday. They got a $50 reward.
