Elephant Walks Towards The Doctors, But Don’t Take Your Eyes Off Of Her Right Front Leg

Mosha the elephant was only two years old when she lost her leg in a landmine injury along the Thai-Burmese border. But that’s when Dr. Therdchair Jivacate, an orthopedic surgeon, stepped in to help her. He has been working with the world’s first elephant hospital in Thailand in order assist injured elephants like Mosha. Dr. Jivacate managed to fit Mosha with the first prosthetic leg ever designed for an elephant. It had to be super strong to hold the elephant’s weight.

Dr. Jivacate operated on Mosha’s leg after she lost half of her front leg in the land mind accident 15 years ago. He had the idea to make a prosthetic for her and used his knowledge and expertise as an orthopedic surgeon to create a prosthetic. As the little elephant grew up, she needed to be fitted for a new prosthetic leg every now and then.

It has already been 15 years since Dr. Jivacate did the life-changing operation on her foot, but Mosha still remembers him. I am sure she is never going to forget him for the rest of her life. When he comes to see her, she is so happy. He is the kindest, gentlest man, and she seems to sense that he loves her too.

He brings her candy when he comes to visit, and she knows just where to look for it. She goes straight for his pocket with her trunk, and of course, he doesn’t mind. I loved watching her mess his hair up with her big ears. Dr. Jivacate and his team are incredible for all they do to help these beautiful animals.
