Army bee?

The military planned to use bees to find landmines. The bees could be trained to recognize that something was wrong with the pollen in the flowers, because the acids from the landmines would have been absorbec by the plantlife in the area. The idea was scrapped when PETA said that bees couldn’t be drafted into the military because they arn’t U.S. citizens. Makes you wonder about the K-9 unit, doesn’t it?
