Unleash the sea lions of War!
The use of animals in war is an old story. Some of them, such as the WWI carrier pigeon Cher Ami
, have become famous. The charismatic critter in the impending war in Iraq is Zachary
, a 19-year-old California Sea Lion
who has been trained to locate enemy frogmen. Other animal conscripts in the Gulf include chickens
; the Iraqis are rumored to have kamikaze camels.
