And Your Little Dog TooBy Emelius at 1:27 AM
Things in Fallujah have reached a new level of sadness now as the US military seeks out and destroys domestic animals that have been feeding on the dead and may have contacted rabies. I can only assume the type of mentality that would volunteer for such a job as to hunt down and kill cats and dogs.
The marines gather briefly over a pile of trash, one pointing across the dirt lot to a row of burned out homes where moments before a dog was seen loping for cover amid the ruined buildings.
"I think we wounded a couple and they took off that way," he said, as another marine pulled his quarry onto a ridge, its bloodied head rolling side to side in the dust.
