U.S. Army gets into the April Fools’ Day spirit

The U.S. Army is training military cats, hoping they will be a cheaper alternative to dogs that conduct drug-sniffing operations.

Or so that’s the claim in a news post celebrating April Fools’ Day.

“Soldiers around the regiment have been doing their part to support the program by capturing stray cats in their neighborhoods and bringing them into the detachment located on Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, Va. More than 100 cats have been collected since the program started earlier this month,” says the “press release” from the Army’s website.
