VIDEO: Women with Big Hearts Knit Elephant-Sized Sweaters

With the onset of harsh winters, elephants from Mathura found themselves wearing cozy, hand-knitted sweaters and leg warmers. Local women began working on the colourful  jumpers last year for their ele-friends to help shield them from the cold.

Elephants from Wildlife S.O.S Elephant Conservation & Care Centre in Mathura, just got jumbo-sized woolies to shield themselves against the cold.

The elephants residing here are rescued from captivity and were previously subjected to cruelty and exploitation.

Now safe at the centre, they were cozied up with knitted jumpers that local women were working on since last year. The severity of the cold makes them prone to pneumonia & arthritis. So they didn’t complain !
