A nine-year-old female elephant, Mosha, was fixed with a new prosthetic leg on Thursday in Lampang, northern Thailand. Mosha lost her limb stepping on a landmine in 2006.

The MaeYao National Reserve have fixed five prosthetic limbs to the animal since it arrived in 2006, just two days after the incident. Since then she has had to be fitted with bespoke prosthetics as she has grown in size. The MaeYao National Reserve claims to have built the world’s first hospital for elephants.
