An elephant can't jump.

In one of the wars (First World War I think..) the army used dogs with sticky bombs attached to their backs so they could run under tanks, the bomb would attach to the underside of said tank and then kaboom. However.. they did discover the STICKY bombs usually stayed stuck to the dog and the poor dog died to.
