[Crm-sig] New Issue: Non-human Actors

Dear all,

I am not an expert in biology, but the question has aroused a lot of
interest within my organization and I, therefore, allow myself to provide
some animal examples within museum databases.

I don't know if this example has been mentioned before, but the animals
that received the Dickin medal are in my opinion good examples that animals
participated in wars.

As an example, the Canadian War Museum documents a Dickin medal of a dog
named Gander <https://www.warmuseum.ca/collections/artifact/1312162>.
Although Gander is not widely documented on the museum's website, his
Wikipedia <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gander_(dog)> page highlights
several of his heroic acts.

Another similar example would be the rescue dog named Rex (also documented
on Wikipedia <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rex_(search_and_rescue_dog)>)
which is associated with 4 items from the Imperial War Museums
<https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/search?query=&pageSize=30&media-records=all-records&style=list&filters%5BagentString%5D%5BRex+%28rescue+dog%29%5D=on>.
In addition to the Dickin medal
<https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/30083092>, they also
document his harness
<https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/30083091>.

Here is a short description from the harness record:

Harness associated with 'Rex', a British Second World War Home Front
> 'rescue dog'. 'Rex' was awarded the Dickin medal on 25 April 1945 for
> outstanding bravery in finding bomb victims, trapped under fallen debris.


Returning to Canada, the Canadian Museum of History documents 116 artifacts
(mostly trophies)
<https://www.historymuseum.ca/collections/?type=all&q1=all%3A%3A_contains%3A%3AAssociated%20Famous%20Animal&sort=title&order=asc&view=grid&size=24&page=1>
won by horses in various horse racing championships. The majority of horses
are identified by their names such as Northern Dancer
<https://www.historymuseum.ca/collections/artifact/2324619> for
example. His biography is really well documented on Wikipedia
<https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Dancer> again.

It also seems important to me to underline that the information on these
horses is currently recorded in the "Person/Institution" field with an
"Associated Famous Animal" tag. I don't know the reasons for this choice,
but I found the association between person and animal worth mentioning and
probably questioning.

I hope these few examples highlight the desire of some institutions to
document the participation of specific animals in documented events.

Finally, I also wanted to mention this Twitter thread
<https://twitter.com/TMPHopkins1/status/1229754120699072513?form=MY01SV&OCID=MY01SV>where
a few people are discussing the best way to describe a goat within their
organizations.

Best,
Philippe
