Wounded Baby Elephant Recieves Hydrotherapy at Animal Hospital in Central Thailand



CHON BURI – Baby elephant Clear Sky – who lost part of her foot in a snare – is learning to walk again thanks to a unique rehab centre outside Bangkok, Thailand.

The six-month-old is the first elephant to receive hydrotherapy at an animal hospital in Chonburi province, a few hours from Bangkok.

The goal is to strengthen the withered muscles in her front leg, which was wounded three months ago in an animal trap laid by villagers to protect their crops.

The wrinkly pachyderm, who has has tufts of jet black hair sprouting on top of her head, limps around the pool before her swim.



“By her fourth or fifth sessions she will enjoy swimming more. She’s just a baby, that’s why she’s a bit scared at first but, by nature, elephants love the water,” said Vet Padet, an elephant handler.
