Vulture Tagged by Israeli Scientists Flies into Saudi Arabia…And is Arrested for Being a Spy


vultureA vulture tagged by scientists at Tel Aviv University has strayed into Saudi Arabian territory, where it was promptly arrested on suspicion of being a Mossad spy, Israeli and Saudi media reported today.

The bird was found in a rural area of the country wearing a transmitter and a leg bracelet bearing the words ‘Tel Aviv University’, according to the reports, which surfaced first in the Israeli daily Ma’ariv.

Although these tags indicate that the bird was part of a long-term research project into migration patters, residents and local reporters told Saudi Arabia’s Al-Weeam newspaper that the matter seemed to be a ‘Zionist plot.’

The accusations went viral, with hundreds of posts on Arabic-language websites and forums claiming that the ‘Zionists’ had trained these birds for espionage.

The Sinai regional governor last month suggested that a shark that killed and maimed tourists on its Red Sea port may have been intentionally released by Israeli agents in order to sabotage the country’s tourist industry.

‘What is being said about the Mossad throwing the deadly shark in the sea to hit tourism in Egypt is not out of the question. But it needs time to confirm,’ Mohamed Abdel Fadil Shousha said, according to the Sun.

  1. And if Israel sends fruit to Saudi Arabia then it must be fruit laced with neurotoxin. If an Israeli kicks a pebble across the Jordanian border it must be with the intent to kill. So on and so forth. Anyways someone should set up a defense fund for the bird.

  2. This vulture was from the top secret “Flying Squad” of Mossad. Very clever trick using vultures for reconnaisance as they are such ugly birds and people will not normally go near them.

  3. I’m a defense attorney and i would love to have this vulture as my client to be in the upcoming trial. The options are endless!! I could plead insanity for the bird, the bird automatically pleads the fivth,or perhaps I could plead something rather ingenious(certaily for the Saudis)if it was a spy, why would it announce it to the world with a tag around it’s leg? I see the dollars flowing!!
