~The story of Mosha

new leg

salutes her new prosthetic limb,

The young Asian elephant lost her right front leg
after stepping on a landmine aged
only seven months old.

Close to death, she was rescued and brought
to the Friends of the Asian Elephant hospital
in Lampang, Thailand, where she became the first
elephant in the world to be fitted with
a prosthetic leg in 2007.
