People Are Knitting Giant Sweaters For Rescued Elephants To Protect Them From Cold

“It is important to keep our elephants protected from the bitter cold during this extreme winter, as they are weak and vulnerable having suffered so much abuse making them susceptible to ailments such as pneumonia,” cofounder Kartick Satyanarayan said in a release. “The cold also aggravates their arthritis which is a common issue that our rescued elephants have to deal with.” Thank goodness the abuse those sweet babies had to face is in the past, with bright – and stylish – future ahead of them.

Winters get very cold in North India, so a concerned animal shelter decided to make huge sweaters for its rescued elephants

Each sweater takes around 4 weeks to make

Still, the loving volunteers make sure that the knits are warm, cozy, colorful and even fashionable
