This is an email we received from Soraida Salwala, founder of Friends of the Asian Elephant and star of LEiT. Our thoughts are with Mosha and the family at FAE. Hopefully we will hear good news back from them soon, and if we do, we’ll keep you posted.
When Mosha walks I have noticed something is wrong on Mosha’s right hind leg. She has no pain, no swelling but it is as if her weight makes it difficult for her knee to hold. I shall try to send the VDO clip later.
(FAE) Friends of the Asian Elephant
The X-ray is scheduled this afternoon.
I am preparing myself, the vets and the staff for the worst( if Mosha’s legs could no longer bear her weight), she would not be able to stand. For the past few days Mosha has some difficulties standing up. Poor Baby! How she loves to walk, to run, to climb the fenced area to show the strength she has but she does not know what is happening. She sees other elephants come and go but Granny is always there, Palahdee is there , Mother is always there for her, comforting her.
She loves to see people visiting her, talking to her. She is a happy baby, loved by all.
We shall do our best, please join us to pray for Mosha that she will grow and survive. She fought for her life when she was seven months old. She is now almost four and may we pray she will enjoy more years of happy life with us, Friends of the Asian Elephant.
Please forward to people you know as many as you can.
FAE needs support so we could help, not only Mosha but other unfortunate elephants too.
Thank you very much.
Soraida Salwala, Founder
