Ministry of Animals

Did you know that the Ministry of Defence employs animals? Apparently, 995 dogs, 501 horses, 13 falcons, three mountain goats, two Shetland ponies and a Swaledale ram have been recorded in their stocktake.

The 'military menagerie' includes guard dogs, sniffer dogs and falcons used to clear runways.  Most of the other animals are regimental mascots.
