This Indian Sanctuary Makes Special Elephant Pyjamas!


The Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center in Mathura in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India is seeing immense support from women from nearby villages who are knitting huge woolen jumpers and legwear for rescued elephants. After the care center emphasized on the danger of the animals being affected by the winter temperature, which sometimes touches freezing point during the night, the ladies started producing massive elephant pyjamas to fit these formerly abused animals.

Many pictures show the elephants at the center wearing multicolored woolen pajamas, which look like pretty Christmas sweaters, covering their body and feet. The staff and villagers standing among the friendly elephants, now warm enough to have fun. Women from nearby villages hard started to knit and crochet these jumpers after the sanctuary’s staff warned about the fast dropping temperature. Now knit-to-fit, these woolen clothes look like elephant pyjamas or leg warmers, and make life easier for the most lovable creatures.

Kartick Satyanaryan, co-fpunder of Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center says that it is important to keep the animals protected even though their hides are thick. This is because, having suffered abuse and undergone physical, mental and emotional trauma, the animals are weak and vulnerable. Wildlife SOS rescues elephants from captivity, trafficking and exploitation for street begging and circuses. Once reached, the elephants are provided with treatment, care, and allowed to live a life full of happiness and dignity.

Satyanarayan adds that the animals, having faced severe abuse and cruelty, are specially susceptible to ailments like pneumonia and arthritis. The warm jumpers and elephant pyjamas help them stay comfortable all through fhe extremely cold nights.  

The cozy wear takes months to be completed, owing to the enormous size. But the women from neighbouring villages are more than happy to do it. Anything for keeping a elephants happy, right?

Currently, the rescue center houses over 20 elephants, among whom females Laxmi, Phoolkali and Suzy were the first to receive the jumpers.
