London, Jan 5 (ANI): A vulture tagged by scientists at Tel Aviv University was 'arrested' on suspicion of being a Mossad spy after the bird strayed into Saudi Arabian territory, according to reports.
Israeli daily Ma'ariv reports that the bird was found in a rural area of the country wearing a transmitter and a leg bracelet bearing the words 'Tel Aviv University', reports the Daily Mail.
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 became a rage on the Internet with hundreds of posts on Arabic-language websites and forums claiming that the 'Zionists' had trained these birds for espionage. (ANI)
