The chaotic US withdrawal from Afghanistan has not only displaced civilians. The animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) claims that 60 bomb-sniffing dogs and another 60 “working dogs” were left behind at Kabul airport. The canines are now being handled by local security staff who discovered them after US troops departed. The dogs will reportedly be put back to work as the airport gradually reopens. The Pentagon has denied owning the dogs or abandoning them.
