Elephant pleased by new leg

Elephant Mosha lost one of her legs in a landmine explosion. As often happens to amputees, she became depressed, also suffering from rejection by other elephants. However, doctors have managed to fit Mosha with an artificial leg, and she is now eating again and has been accepted by her elephant friends.

"She has grown in confidence and now likes to play with the others," reports Friends of the Asian Elephant worker Soraida Salwala.
