Villagers Knit Enormous Sweaters to Keep Rescued Elephants Warm

A group of compassionate villagers has created cozy winter garments for rescued elephants at the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center in northern India.

These custom-knit sweaters warmly embrace the elephants as the region experiences a cold snap.

Watch the video at the end.

The sanctuary is home to 23 rescued elephants, each with a past of exploitation and abuse.

These gentle giants no longer face freezing temperatures without protection, thanks to the kind-hearted locals.

Each sweater took about four weeks to create, according to Wildlife SOS co-founder Kartick Satyanarayan. The volunteers also added a vibrant touch to the elephant-sized clothing.

So far, three elephants have received their sweaters, and there are hopes that the rest will have the chance to sport similar outfits next year.

In the meantime, the sanctuary provides less fashionable but equally warm blankets to keep the elephants comfortable.

Ensuring the happiness and comfort of these elephants is the sanctuary’s main priority, particularly given their history of hardship.

Satyanarayan emphasized the importance of protecting the elephants from the harsh winter, as they are susceptible to ailments such as pneumonia due to past abuse.

The cold weather can also worsen arthritis, a common issue for the sanctuary’s rescued elephants.
