It is fitting to remember the pets who died in what has been called the red zone, the area around the twin towers which were destroyed by Al Qaeda terrorists. I don’t have the details but a large area around the Twin Towers was cordoned off after the attack. There were many pets inside apartments in this area. Their guardians wanted to return to collect them but were unable to do so. As I understand it these animals died because they were forcibly abandoned. I also will make the presumption that some animals died in those apartments because of rubble and debris falling down onto the buildings.
