Rescued and handicapped elephants taking shelter at Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center in Mathura are being equipped against a cold wave that is taking over North India, with XXXXXXXL sized giant sweaters.
They were requested to help the NGO's pachyderm residents survive the zero-degree winters. The elephants have surprisingly not attempted to tear off their ensemble, even if it won't win them any fashion points.
20 elephants at the Centre have been rescued from illegal captivity, trafficking mafia, or from exploitation at circuses. Here, they get frequent baths, a nutritious diet, and good veterinary care.
Kartick Satyanarayan, co-founder and CEO of Wildlife SOS told the Times of India: "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. The cold also aggravates their arthritis which is a common issue that our rescued elephants have to deal with."
