India’s First War Memorial For Animals Coming Soon In This City

It’s a good thing that the world has begun to identify the heroics of animals who have invariably come forward to help during emergencies like war, unaware of the risk it entails. And to honour their exceptional heroism, Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut is all set to open the country’s first war memorial for animals.

The memorial will be dedicated to service animals like dogs, mules and horses. It will remember the animals who, over the years, have helped the army in counter-insurgency operations in Kashmir and in the battlefield during the Kargil War.

A dog named Mansi, who was awarded army’s highest honour for dogs due to her role in the counter-insurgency operations in Kashmir in 2016, tops the list of animals to be remembered.
