People Are Knitting Giant Sweaters For Elephants To Keep Them Cozy

By Amanda Froelich, True Activist

To protect rescued elephants from a cold front in India, activists are knitting sweaters for the large land mammals.

It’s estimated that within the next ten years, African elephants will go extinct. To protect the beautiful, wise, and intelligent creatures, activists have gone to great lengths to deter and capture poachers who are intent on killing them, as well as rhinos, in the wild. Now, a group of compassionate activists is knitting sweaters for the large land mammals in India to keep them cozy and to show love. 

According to Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center, a cold front is moving across northern India and everyone is beginning to feel the chill – including wildlife. To protect the sanctuary’s pachyderm residents, activists in the nation have volunteered to knit giant sweaters to keep the previously abused mammals warm and protected.

Local villagers were eager to collaborate and custom-knit large sweaters for the elephants and did so with a smile. Kartick Satyanarayan, co-founder of Wildlife SOS, told The Dodo that it took about four weeks for them to complete one. However, that time frame didn’t stop them from quickly creating more.

Each elephant was rescued from a life of exploitation and abuse, so volunteers feel like knitting them sweaters is the least they can do. Said Satyanarayan in a press release:

“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.”

So far, three of the sanctuary’s 23 rescued elephants have been gifted sweaters (and are donning them proudly). Until the rest can be completed, the remaining pachyderms will wear less fashionable blankets to keep them warm.

  1. “Ass Backwards” – Geopolitical/GCR/RV Overview – 00:00 EST – Sunday – January 22, 2017


    What if I told you Trump (Drumpf) was from Jewish ancestors out of Germany would anyone believe me? Probably not.

    But what if I told you President Trump is being held on a political string by the Republic, China and Russia due to past discretions? Now would that be more realistic? Yeah, maybe?

    Know that Trump’s inauguration speech was the soft worldwide GESARA announcement we’ve been waiting for, and written specifically for him which he was made him read as part of the deal for his entire family’s amnesty. Making him a cabal traitor.

    Keep in mind also that the contents in that speech are contrary to everything he and his Ashkenazic family believe in, which means that Donald Trump has 100% been controlled from the start of his campaign. Thus everything election oriented we’ve witnessed was all one great big lying cabal show.

    Stay with me.

    The cabal knew they could not stop Trump from running, in fact they did everything they could to prevent him from winning, even assassination. But nothing worked –as he was protected by the light on a lot of levels — even though he was 100% dark from birth.

    Incredible I know. Keep reading.

    For those in the know, Trump’s speech Friday was a shocking moment to say the least as it meant the light factions backing the Republic had full taken control over the cabal/zionists. And there wasn’t a damn thing those killer lizards could do but play right along like good little beaten reptiles.

    Finally the Children of Zion were seated politely and quietly at the same humble table, can our RV meal be served.

    Amazing! Hallelujah! PTL!

    The plan now is to slowly roll out all GESARA compliance (including the RV) using the cover of the Trump presidency, then release the Trumps from service and pay out dad’s IQD position as well as allow Donald to retain his precious real estate properties including his entertainment name brand.

    Not a bad consolation prize for a defeated cabal prince with orange skin and herpes. The deal sweetener for Trump was that he had to win the election and be declared President, publicly, all be it only temporarily.

    China and Russia have had several great laughs at Trump’s expense, including inauguration night when he was made to dance 3x with his “transgender wife” at multiple inaugural balls.

    Gosh was that ever uncomfortable to watch in real time. Even Donald’s antics required unusual levels of skill to pull off three horrifying first spins with Melania, who looked utterly terrified of being exposed right on the spot. Poor fella.

    Watching that whole Inauguration Day pageant play out must have been too funny back in the Kremlin and Beijing. But hey, they still serve each other’s purposes right now, so why enjoy the moment.

    What a crazy world we live in folks.

    Hope I haven’t lost everyone yet. Just know that I care enough to share the truth as I receive it. Come what may.

    Sadly, the rest of the world is seeing through USA, Inc’s thin veil of believability now, and the Elders know this, which is why they are planning to snap the final financial puzzle pieces into place sometime over the weekend–before the Chinese New Year.

    It’s just downright embarrassing to be an American right now, yet there’s no better place to be on planet earth moving forward and for the next 1,000+ years. So that’s ironic even for irony.

    Getting to the depths of the real truth in our politics and finances has become such an ass backwards study it’s almost not worth the effort.. nor the answers.

    Until it is. Sobeit.

    God is with us.
