Pet and animal policy for military evacuations

No. This is really where my libertarianism comes out. Policies like this just breed trouble and confusion and despair. Being a pet guardian is a big job, and just one of many. To think that you may ask someone's son or daughter to stay in harm's way while your chihauhau rides safely out seems like a poor application of priorities. And I am no fan of people. But we have a long precedent of putting humans first, and lacking compelling evidence this should remain in place. That being said, a local official should be able to wiggle around these rules for extreme situations. This is a lose, lose and then die situation. But changing policy like this is not a good fix. DD
