Category:Military animals[edit]

Reasons for discussion request: I went and started this one, having completely failed to find the existing Category:War animals. But even now I've found it, I think Category:Military animals still needs to exist (see the content of this cat for an eg). So, I propose the following structure:

Alternatively, one not bother with Category:Animals in war and just place Category:Military animals under Category:War as well as Category:Military.

Btw, the structure of Category:Animals is problematic. It currently goes:

So if anyone has better ideas about how to arrange this so that one doesn't have to correctly guess "Animal husbandry" to arrive at "War animals"/"Animals in war", speak up! JackyR 22:56, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Actually, maybe


Two things an animal may be a war animal without being in a war setting, e.g.a cavalry mount on parade, so "war animals" is better than "animals in war" and there is nothing to stop a category to be a sub-category of one or more categories. KTo288 (talk) 13:16, 19 June 2008 (UTC)


I've moved the cats about and re-wrote the intro, "Military animals" is now the main cat for this topic and is a sub cat of "Working animals" and "military", and "Working animals" itself has been made a subcat of "Domesticated animals" . Both "War animals" and "cavalry" are now sub cats of "military animals" with instructions in the intro to place ridden animals in cavalry, and riderless animals in "war animals". Military mascots may need to be created later, and maybe "Military draft animals" for chariots and artillery draft horses etc.KTo288 (talk) 13:41, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Closed. No opposition in several months = the solution is accepted. --rimshottalk 11:30, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
