Vulture Arrested Under Suspicion of Being Israeli Spy

January 5, 2011

Saudi Arabia (ChattahBox World News)—Saudi Arabian investigators have determined that Israeli intelligence will stop at nothing when training spies to go undercover—and arrested a vulture last week that they accuse of being a Mossad spy trained by Israel, the UK Telegraph reports.

The bird was discovered in rural Saudi Arabia wearing a GPS transmitter and a tag with an identification code on it from Tel Aviv University, the Telegraph notes. Locals accused the bird of being linked to a “Zionist plot” and told security forces, who subsequently arrested the vulture.

Following the arrest, hundreds of posts appeared on Arabic-language Web sites accusing “Zionists” of training birds for espionage. This follows reports from 2010 in which an Egyptian official apparently accused a shark that attacked humans of being an Israeli spy, the Telegraph reports.
