“But it is one thing to read about dragons, and another to meet them.”
We need torsos. Can we just grab a couple of the right size ones and drag ’em off?
In any case, I certainly want the leg off that gyro-shot griffin that didn’t get to splash in the fountain with his buddies. Carry it off like a club.
NO. You can’t under your present contract.
VII. Salvage Rights : All equipment, vehicles, and other war materiel recovered by the Unit from enemy forces, depots, garrisons, industrial or civil centers, prisoners, and other sources shall be subject to the following claims and terms of division to be “Prize Court/Outright Grant”, meaning all material taken by the Unit is turned over to the Employer, but their claim is submitted to a prize court that determines the disposition of all captured gear. The contract allows up to 12 weeks for a prize court to complete its deliberations.

If it’s a poison, this will help us identify and maybe find an antidote.
If it’s a disease, a pure sample is often essential to finding a cure.

We radioed in that these jokers did something funky to the water supply and urged that it be shut down immediately. Our people to immediately go onto internal/bottled water and (I’d suggest) NBC protocols.
At the same time we can inform our commander that we have a pure sample of whatever suspected contaminate they were spreading.
That being said, we’re crafting a story together. If the plot would function better with us overlooking this inconvenient tidbit, then overlooked it shall be. Oops. Fog of war. =)
