A three legged elephant gets a new leg

A young elephant is walking much more easily after having an artificial limb attached said Metro news.

Mocha stepped on a land mine that severely injured her front right leg when she was 7 months old. The injury was so severe that it had to be amputated.

The landmines at the Thai-Myanmar border have been claiming victims, both humans and animals, left from border conflicts.

After two years of stumbling around on three legs, the Asian Elephant Hospital, the world’s first elephant hospital, came to her aid said ABC news.
