Amputated Leg Takes A Walk

Maybe you've heard the story making its rounds; the rescue squad responds to an accident, the victim's leg is amputated at the scene, he's airlifted to the truama center, and his leg, well, isn't.

Instead, one of the firefighters takes it home in order to use it to train cadaver-sniffing dogs.  Supposedly, the intent was always to return it to the, um, rightful owner.

The firefighter, 14 year veteran Cindy Economou, is on leave pending an investigation (apparently there's some confusion on whether or not a supervisor suggested taking the foot).

But I know the real reason she's being disciplined:

If you give someone a foot, they'll take a yard.
