Injured seagull gets Barbie's leg

A badly injured seagull was saved after its wounded leg was amputated and replaced with parts from a Barbie doll.
Local 6 News reports the seagull was found by a yacht crew in the city of Antalya, Turkey, with a leg that was on the verge of gangrene.
The crew, apparently inspired by peg-leg pirates, amputated the leg and created a new one with the leg of a Barbie doll and a big Barbie doll hand as a foot.
The seagull, who they have called Martha, has made an incredible recovery and is now walking, and even running, around the boat on the new leg

Here's my question - Why did the yacht crew have a Barbie doll on board?

Even better question: Why did the seagull walk around the ship? Why not open up and bust some caps in these suckers for disgracing him with a barbie leg?

Well, they could have wittled out a peg leg from a piece of driftwood... but we're talking about beered up fishermen here, who's going to pay the medical bill when someone cuts off a thumb?

Sure it'll last longer... just make it hollow and it'll float!

Well, your talking about beered up sailors who would rather go to a toy store and buy a barbie doll than whittle down a peg leg for a bird named Martha.

Makes sense if your in-sane.

Hey, nothing was said about going to a toy store. It could have just been lying around (maybe a daughter was visiting or something).

eh... I don't think the barbie doll would be too impressed having a new leg like that.
