Pentagon Needs Something To Do
Spencer Akerman has a nice piece of information on his site from the new Special Forces manual:
According to a recently-issued Special Forces manual, while certain pack animals are acceptable to use for spec-ops purposes (donkeys, mules), elephants "should not be used by U.S. military personnel." In the assessment of the manual's authors, "Elephants are not the easygoing, kind, loving creatures that people believe them to be. They are, of course, not evil either."
Afterall, any special ops forces working undercover in the middle of BFE will need to consult the manual when deciding whether to confiscate a mule or an elephant to execute their mission.
