Elephants Are Wearing Sweaters in North India And Here’s Why

Indian conservationist group Wildlife SOS has come up with an innovative solution to help elephants cope with northern Uttar Pradesh's chilly winters – by knitting jumbo jumpers for them. The NGO is working with village women to knit the giant jumpers for theelephants housed at its local conservation centre in the holy Hindutown of Mathura. Some of the jumpers are knitted by women in far flung towns and brought to the centre for the final fit outs.
