In St. Petersburg, created body armor for dogs

33
In St. Petersburg, the serial production of protective gear for service dogs, which protect animals not only from sticks and stones, but also from knives, fragments and bullets, has been established Rossiyskaya Gazeta with reference to the developer of body armor NPO Special materials.




According to the company, they are currently "producing six basic models of body armor - from zero to second class protection. And the most powerful of them can withstand a shot from a TT pistol with a 7,62 caliber of a millimeter or a nine millimeter bullet of a Makarov pistol. ”

It is reported that the equipment "consists of two sections - chest and neck - and supplemented with special elements that give protection to the legs and torso from fragments, debris and other objects." You can also hang reflective elements on each vest and even write the name of the unit.

However, animal innovators did not like this innovation. Social activists saw in the bulletproof vests "signs of ill-treatment" with our smaller brothers.

“I am against dogs being used as targets or in mine clearance.” I am sure that there are safer ways to completely abandon service dogs in “hot spots” - for example, using robots. Of course, they are more expensive, ”said Svetlana Los, head of the Right to Life organization.

“In addition, it is not clear how convenient such protection is for the dog itself. It is difficult for a person to put on a bulletproof vest weighing tens of kilograms, and for a dog he may not be very heavy at all, ”she added, recalling that“ in Russia the convention on the protection of animal rights is not signed, so they can be used as you wish and anywhere. "

The representative of the NGO Yuri Klyonov did not agree with the “inability to lift” with the public woman.

“Everything is thought out to the smallest detail. Our tests showed that dogs quickly get used to armor, freely jump and run, not experiencing fatigue for several hours. In addition, we do not only make body armor, but also produce special equipment for dogs to protect them from cold or heat, ”he said.

As for robots, technical progress has at least stepped forward, but not as much as everyone would like.

“No technique today can replace a dog's scent. Before the development of protection, we specifically traveled to the “hot spots”, and I personally became convinced that the first goal of the terrorists was always a service dog, because it was she who could be the first to thwart their plans - to detect the enemy, to find explosives. As for ill-treatment, one should understand that the owners of such dogs protect their pets like the apple of their eye. Service dogs save lives, and body armor saves lives of dogs, ”said Klyonov.

      Mine itself must be sent for a bowl of pedigripal!
      (Without body armor!)
      That
      Social activists did NOT see “signs of ill-treatment” in body armor.

        NGO Special materials, I can give an idea. Give the dough to different couturiers and they will say that it is fashionable. Demand from the glamorous will be sky-high, all of Moscow will buy, get rich. laughing If in the case, then I doubt when I hit that they will withstand the bones and the internal organs.

        Our zoo and environmental advocates are more engaged in political PR than real work. Of course I do not want to throw a stone at all. In the United States, many volunteers who are engaged in the fate of animals, feed abandoned cubs, build shelters for sick and crippled animals. I myself correspond with the defenders of the black American bear, they also love bears there. Probably it is necessary for zoo-defenders to plunge into volunteer, rather than PR activities.

        So the whole point is that these "pedigripals" are to be targeted both at dogs and at people.

        Normal intelligent business. The State Department pays them the money through the tenth hands - they work it out, "create activity" ... Some kind of activity is being carried out, an information wave is rising ... And if this wave dies something necessary and valuable for Russia, then it’s a bonus! For example, here is such a theme - “Nord Stream” interferes with migration routes of relict crucian carp - down with “Nord Stream”! And it seems like America with its smelly shale gas has nothing to do with it - just caring for crucian carp and nothing more ... Ilf and Petrov described all this perfectly in due time ....

        We all remember how these Greenpeace fought against our offshore rigs. And they would try in America to blather about shale gas! They would shut up their mouths quickly, there are a lot of examples, they’ll even shoot feature films about it ...

      It’s a very necessary thing and let this light go to shit, but it won’t go to the detention of terrorists and criminals, it won’t go to the rubble after the explosions and earthquake, these lights will not understand this, now the four-legged helpers will be protected and this is the best protection of rights animals.

    Of course, it is difficult to say what would be more humane to do: for a four-legged pet to die immediately or for a long time to suffer from the consequences of a bullet or fragmentation hit in body armor. But if at least one furry assistant remains alive, then it's probably worth it!

    Needless to say, the dog is now the most unprotected military man. But to make a real DOG - work no less than another person - a specialist. So I support the body armor. And who is against, see comment 1.

    Historical fact
    At the end of the war, Dzhulbars was wounded and could not independently participate in the Victory Parade in Moscow. Major General Grigory Medvedev reported this to the commander of the parade, Marshal Konstantin Rokossovsky, who informed Joseph Stalin. Stalin ordered the dog to be carried along Red Square on his tunic.
    Help
    From September 1944 to August 1945, taking part in mine clearance on the territory of Romania, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Austria, a service dog named Dzhulbars found 7468 mines and more than 150 shells
    And there were quite a few four-legged ones. Even films were shot - Four tankmen and a dog, White bim black ear, Mukhtar, etc.

    I am stealing from such experts. She is sure that there are ways. Well, develop, imagine in the MO.

    how convenient is such protection for the dog itself


    Gather a control group and poll.
    I have long come to the conclusion that some areas of social activity are used by unhealthy people to attract the attention of important people to their worthless person, pump up the FWM and satisfy their complexes based on the exploitation of humanism. Or just modding their "activism." This is trolling 800 lvl also with the involvement of the public.

      Only crack can not be in the subject of such a moose damn! Since you are such an ardent damn defender, then take matters into your own hands and develop protective equipment for dogs yourself! And let the MO offer your project protection for it! But maybe PR itself is empty to create such as I protect the animals here .......... Yes, she’s a blank mistake !! wassat !

    Dogs must be protected and therefore very good good that they did at least some kind of protection for the dogs! And then the dog during work (service) is the most unprotected sad from all personnel! And the dog’s work is the most dangerous yes and the hardest! And what kind of human rights defenders are LOSI angry They say that this is animal cruelty! fool And how can they know that they are not the dogs whom they put on armor to protect! Elk negative then go to the place of the little dogs to work once you are such a protector! Suddenly your nose will be better than a dog! bully ! Damn clever and clever, defenders and defenders! what

    I would also put a helmet on my head. These dogs are very, very useful, and raising one such dog costs a lot of time and money. Not to mention the fact that a person becoming attached to an animal sees him as a partner. If this bronik rescues at least one dog, there will already be an achievement.

    Unlike human rights defenders.
