US Marines Leasing Donkeys

In Afghanistan US servicemen are learning how to use a new kind of military "equipment" - donkeys. These animals proved indispensable for bringing provisions and water to units stationed in high mountainous areas.

Several dozen of these hard-working animals have been leased by the marines from the local population and are beginning to replace the "Hammers" that have earlier been used to transport cargos in the mountains.

US commanding officers say that the lease and upkeep of the donkeys come much cheaper than transporting the cargos by other means. Now many servicemen, before flying out to Afghanistan, in addition to the usual training and shooting drills, take a special course in how to correctly handle a donkey.
