    Default Shoe-wearing elephant is big hit

    An elephant that lumbers along wearing SHOES is proving a big attraction in India.

    The elephant - called Radha - can be spotted wearing a swanky pair of beige designer shoes, made by a well-wisher called Raju Sagar in the city of Indore.
    Her shoes were made because Radha had a problem with her feet, which hurt when she walked.

    "It took me a lot of time, almost six months to make these shoes," said Raju.

    With the help of his friends and supporters in the neighbourhood, Raju is set to get the elephant another two shoes as well as other accessories.
    Elephants often get very special treatment in India, where people of the Hindu religion worship an elephant-headed god called Ganesh. Radha tries them out!

    The creatures have been under threat from poachers, who want them for their tusks, which are made of something called ivory.
    There has been a worldwide ban on ivory since 1989, but animal campaigners are still very worried about the creatures. But there's no doubting that Radha is a much-loved member of her neighbourhood.

    That’s a good idea. I’ve heard that elephants in India develop serious problems with their feet from walking on pavement.
