Kiwi on a Treadmill

"Kiwi rocking the treadmill"

"Thanks for helping this video gain over 200,000 views! I have been getting a lot of confused comments, so here is a more detailed explanation below (Thanks bittencookie who is quoted here)

"Piwi the Kiwi is hitting the treadmill not to lose weight but to restore his leg strength after breaking his legs in two separate accidents.

"Luckily, wildlife experts found Piwi and transported him to a wildlife park to mend his broken leg. The vets decided to use a treadmill to help with Piwi's recovery.

"At first, Piwi wasn't too thrilled to be on the treadmill, but the vets have said that his workout has drastically improved his muscle tone and great chance of surviving out in the wild again."

I don't know whether to call Piwi the Kiwi 'unlucky' for breaking his legs twice: or 'lucky' for getting help from those vets.
