People are knitting giant sweaters for rescued elephants for protection from cold

In northern India, winter gets unusually chilly. The volunteers at the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center decided to do something selfless for the gentle elephants of the sanctuary. They decided to knit sweaters for these elephants to protect them from approaching winter cold.

For knitting, this one giant and massive sweater for these giant elephants usually takes about 4 weeks of hard work and dedication as the volunteers are knitting these sweaters by hand. While knitting such a massive sweater is hard work in its own self, volunteers are making sure that these sweaters are not only warm but also colorful and some even fashionable.

Cofounder Kartick Satyanarayan said in a release to the media, “it is important to keep our elephants protected from the approaching bitter cold during this extremely cold weather. These elephants are weak and vulnerable, as they have suffered so much abuse in their lives. They are highly susceptible to developing Pneumonia and various other cold-related ailments easily than compared to the wild elephants. The cold also tends to aggravate arthritis in these elephants which has been a primary issue for our rescued elephants and we have been dealing with it since we started this project.”

Thank goodness that the world has these kind and devoted people who are making sure that the abuse of these sweet and gentle creatures not only ended but they are also living a stylish life in the future.
