8th grade students create 3-D printed prosthetic leg for duck

It might be time for Peg the duck to get a new name.

Peg was given the moniker when his owner, Patsy Smith of Mississippi County, Arkansas, found him shortly after he was born. Peg was missing one of his feet, and Smith believes it was probably chewed off by a turtle. Peg struggled with getting around, and Smith put out a call for help, which was answered in September by eighth graders Abby Simmons, Matthew Cook, and Darshan Patel of Armorel High School.
