Also called service or working animals, these wonderful creatures have been known to serve mankind since time immemorial. These special breeds of living species are typically domesticated animals trained to execute specific tasks that are beneficial to the human owners who keep them. Some of the much lighter chores these animals perform include guiding blind people, assisting law enforcement, herding cattle or sheep, hunting or gathering, and securing households or premises. On the other hand, there are also the larger categories of animals that are equipped to carry heavy loads, transport personnel and cargo, as well as do manual labor that people couldn't physically handle. Hence, we coined the phrase "beasts of burden".

For this edition, I'm featuring our modern-day beasts of burden in their black and white photographic splendor. This is my entry for the #monomad challenge by @monochromes.
