20 Emotional Vintage Photos Capture the Moments of Soldiers and Their Lovely Pets in War

Military animals are domesticated animals that are used in warfare and other combat related activities. As working animals, different military animals serve different functions.

Horses, elephants, camels, and other animals have been used for both transportation and mounted attack. Pigeons were used for communication and photographic espionage.

Many other animals have been reportedly used in various specialized military functions, including rats and pigs. Dogs have long been employed in a wide variety of military purposes, more recently focusing on guarding and bomb detection, and along with dolphins and sea lions are in active use today.
