A prosthetic leg for an elephant that stepped on a landmine😢🐘
“when i shared one of these images a few days ago, many of you guessed that it was a prosthetic limb - but for who?
as you can see, it was in fact a prosthetic leg for an elephant - produced in the worlds first elephant hospital and prosthetics factory in northern thailand!
your next question might be "why do elephants need prosthetic legs?", and the answer is sadly the same as for many people in this region - they are the victims of the many landmines scattered along the border of thailand and myanmar.
with the help of these prostheses, the elephants can learn to walk again and live full lives that would have otherwise been impossible.”🐘
