A five-month-old baby elephant, Fah Jam took her first baby step towards rehabbing her injured foot at a rehabilitation center in Pattaya, Thailand. As part of the lengthy rehabilitation process, Fah was taken for her first hydrotherapy treatment, where she was seen taking a dip in the swimming pool to heal her injured front left foot.
The baby elephant was injured at three months old when she got stuck in an animal snare put up by villagers to prevent elephant intrusions in Chanthaburi province. Fah was taken to a private botanical garden, where other elephants nursed her and helped to survive.
According to veterinarians, Fah is showing a good progress after her rehab treatment and they hope that the treatment will prevent her from relying on a prosthetic leg.
