   This is serendipity on a grand scale. It could only be better if her familiar was a sheep, but a bull works too.

I bring this up because during one of the Italian Empire's attempted conquests of Ethiopia (specifically the Second Italo-Abyssinian War), the Italian Army marched through the Danakil Desert supported by an aerial supply column. Since the Italian soldiers refused to eat the standard prepackaged rations that came with their kit, and since fresh meat would have spoiled in the desert heat, they had to come up with a solution.

That solution was attaching parachutes to live sheep and bulls and shortly thereafter hurling them out of low-flying aircraft.

I am not making this up.
