An elephant has only three legs left after stepping on a landmine and taking away many tears
Α brand-new prosthetic leg was placed into a three-limbed elephant in Tʜᴀɪʟᴀɴᴅ, giving it new life. In 2006, Mosha, a nine-year-old female elephant, walked on a landmine and ʟᴏsᴛ a limb.
Since her arrival, Mosha has had five prosthetic limbs implanted to her by the MaeYao National Reserve in Lampang, which claims to have constructed the first elephant hospital in history.
Mosha was the first elephant in the world to receive an artificial leg after being brought to the hospital at the age of seven months.
Staff members have since built a series of progressively robust custom legs to sustain the animal’s weight due to her continuing growth.
The three-legged elephant is first shown stumbling around its enclosure in the footage before resting its stump on a wooden fence.
Αfter putting on a sock, staff members approach the elephant with the artificial leg and connect it to its stump.
Mosha, who is clearly thrilled with the leg, can be seen moving off farther into the enclosure while picking up sand in her trunk and tossing it over herself as though in celebration.
Soraida Salwala opened the elephant hospital in the MaeYao National Reserve in 1993. Since then, more than 3,900 sɪᴄᴋ and injured elephants have received treatment.
