Mules in Pakistan providing relief to quake survivors

Pakistani Mules working to save quake survivors

Nine days after the killer quake struck Kashmir and parts of northern Pakistan, the army mobilised its animal transport units (ATUs), or what's left of them, to reach inaccessible areas - sometimes without any human assistance.

I'm never happy to see creatures other than humans drafted to military service, but the current work of these so called 'beasts' of burden is most valuable and unique.

I hope they fare well.
