Knitting sweaters

You probably have see dogs in sweaters in the cold, but elephants?  Turns out a group of women in India have knitted colorful, beautiful sweaters to keep the elephants warm.

The Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Centre in Mathura, India houses twenty rescued elephants, who had faced abuse from circuses and street acts.  Many of the elephants had open wounds or arthritis, so were especially susceptible to suffering from cold temperatures at night.

I encourage you to check out this article and accompanying photos from The Independent. It’s heartwarming to see how the women are helping the elephants!
