It's a Dirty Job, But An Animal's Gotta Do It

Animals  (tags: animals, humans, dirty work, crime fighting, goats, gardning, interesting )

From geese that guard Chinese police stations to goats trimming the grass of San Francisco's airport, animal employees have been making headlines this month. Many other animals do jobs that are too dirty, dangerous, difficult or expensive for humans.

I like this. Humans and animals should be working together to help each other. I don't mean the animal should be sacrificed in place of a human, but like the goats, they help us with eating vegetation from the forest and we get a nice clean forest that is fertilized as they go.

so tired of humans using animals. some think this is nice, but why should an animals get stuck with the dangerous jobs. In some countries dogs are tied to rope and made to cross roads that might have land mines, so the poor dog can plow up and not he human. This is not right, since humans laid the mines in the first place it is their job to risk their necks and not the dogs. Animals are always being used and abused, time to let them enjoy life, while we do the work.

Good thing for goats and humans involved, bad thing for Kudzu. Seems like a good deal.

Fun facts...never think so badly of rats again, but don't think I can get over squeamishness about maggots.
Noted with thanks.
