I’ve seen them strap on the artificial legs on the elephants and they love them! Because they are smart!
But, have those patients survived?
And how cheap you gotta be to recycle velcro straps and rubber, instead of giving the poor elephant a new leg?
He has been doing surgeries for 70 years? Remind me to NOT have him do mine.
The reference to Dr. Mambet Mamakev, is from 2020. I wonder if he is still doing surgeries. I couldn’t find anything on a quick search.
The Spanish-language Ripley’s, “Aunque Usted no lo Crea!”, says that Chhouk is only two years old.
“Surgical intervention”? You mean he stopped that many surgeries?
I remember when surgeries involved cutting, not intervening. (Maybe some entering veins)
“Ingrown toenail? You need a surgical intervention. Erectile disorder? You need a surgical…. etc etc.”
I recall that The Farside comic of the elephant on the phone missing a leg finding out his leg becoming a umbrella holder. So sad!
A prosthetic leg made from 44 pounds of used rubbers – eeewww
The elephant has taken up tap dancing and become a media sensation
