Would Warm the Grinch's Heart

To be fair, I think this is a pretty cool story. This elephant -- Mocha -- lost her right leg when she stepped on a landmine at the Thai-Myanmar border. We all know about people losing limbs, but I think this is just as sad. Anyway, the Friends of the Asian Elephant Hospital (located in northern Thailand's Lampang province) have been helping her walk again.

Yep: Mocha now has an artificial limb!

I'd like to know how the rehabilitation is going (just because you have a prosthetic limb doesn't mean you'll immediately be able to walk again). Come on now: doesn't this warm your heart just a little bit?
