Fake Leg for Landmine Elephant

Mocha, the elephantA limpalong lump of a three-legged elephant is walking much more easily again after having an artificial limb attached.

The new canvas leg was created for Mocha, a female elephant being cared for by Thai vets.

The animal was severely injured when she stepped on a landmine at the Thai-Myanmar border, losing her front right leg in the blast.

But now experts at the Friends of the Asian Elephant Hospital in northern Thailand's Lampang province have come to her aid - hoping she can soon be set safely free on her own four feet again.
