THAILAND — Mosha the elephant was just seven months old when she stepped on a landmine, causing injuries that caused her part of her front leg to be amputated.
Today reports that Mosha was rescued by Friends of the Asian Elephant Foundation — and while her injuries were severe, they ensured she was given a chance at life.
They gave her a prosthetic leg at the age of two when it became hard for the elephant to move around on three legs.
Through the years, she’s had to get new legs as she’s grown and gained thousands of pounds. Today, she weighs two tons– and she’s gone through nine prosthetic legs.
