After the mine explosion, Mosha survived the operation, during which the veterinarians of the National Reserve managed to stop the bleeding and save the elephant. The first elephant hospital has been operating in this reserve since 1993. And in it, specialists regularly make and replace prostheses for Mosh.
The last prosthesis for the elephant should be the ‘last’, since the growth of the animal has already stopped.
The prosthesis was made by specialists from special plastic, metal and sawdust. And the fastenings allowed them to perfectly attach the prosthesis to the animal’s leg. It took only a few minutes for the elephant to learn how to move with the help of a prosthesis.
About 3.9 thousand sick and injured elephants have been treated in the elephant hospital located in the Lampang National Reserve for 22 years of operation. It is clarified that the animals were treated here for bone fractures, gunshot wounds, eye infections and drug addiction.
