The Israeli Army has added an arsenal of Eland antelopes on the border with Lebanon:

In addition to infantry, armor and intelligence units, the Israel Defense Forces has also deployed eight Eland antelope to further secure Israel’s tense northern border against Hezbollah.

The antelope have been stationed in the zone between the security fence and the international border to clear problematic foliage that distorts views of the Lebanese side and within which Hezbollah guerillas could hide.

The latest in animal warfare: a weed cutter. I wonder if the Israeli Army studied the egological aspect of bring in a new creature to the local ecosystem.

Nevertheless, I hope the Israelis take care of these animals better than they ‘took care’ of the animals at the Gaza Zoo.
