Commemorating the centenary of the First World War in books

Monday Monuments and Memorials – Animals in War, Ottawa

Leave a comment

The Animals in War monument was dedicated in 2012 in Confederation Park, Ottawa. It consists of three interpretative plaques explaining the roles played by animals during past wars. A bronze statue of a medical service dog stands nearby. The artist is David Clendining.

This is one of two Ottawa war memorials to the role of animals. The other is over the entrance to the Memorial Chamber in the Peace Tower.
