This from Arutz 7: Saudi Arabian security forces have captured a vulture that was carrying a global positioning satellite (GPS) transmitter and a ring etched with the words “Tel Aviv University.” They suspect the bird of spying for Israel.
The vulture was caught near the home of a sheikh in the community of Hayel in Saudi Arabia. The researchers said that seven vultures that were marked in Israel in the last few years reached Saudi Arabia. Transmissions from four of them have ceased and they are presumed dead. One vulture--besides R65--is still alive and flying around Saudi Arabia, after spending the winter in Sudan.
The arrest of the vulture--Identified as R65--comes only weeks after an Egyptian official claimed a shark that attacked tourists off the Sinai shore was actually trained and sent by Mossad. There seems to be a feeling that Mossad can "talk to the animals" as there have been a multitude of this type of story, from super rats raised to breed hundreds of times faster that normal and attack only Palestinians--to snakes who seek out Arabs to bite--and not to forget the wild boars. Seriously, you just can't make this stuff up...
