Locals Are Knitting Giant Sweaters For Rescued Elephants In This Mathura Villageby The Daily Eye Team January 24 2017, 2:03 pm Estimated Reading Time: 0 mins, 47 secs
Winter isn’t winter, if you aren’t all snuggled up into your own version of a blanket burrito, with some hot chocolate to keep you company. The weather has been increasingly chilly in the nights, and that’s just down here in the South. On the other hand, North India is nearly hitting freezing point every night, which automatically equals sweater weather. Normally, this rule only applies to humans, but elephants in Mathura are slowly contesting the species divide in the cutest way possible. The Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Centre is home to several elephants who have been rescued from cruel, abusive owners. Although their size tends to make people assume that they’re resistant to cold weather, elephants do still feel the chill. In fact, the cold can lead to pneumonia or worsen their arthritis, said centre officials, in this Times Of India report.
