A vulture has been arrested in Saudi Arabia on suspicion of being a spy. The vulture was tagged at a Tel Aviv University as part of a migration research project. It flew in Saudi territory where the transmitter which read “Tel Aviv University” aroused suspicion. It is now being held on the suspicion that it is a Mossad spy. It is not yet clear what methods of questioning are being used to determine whether the bird is innocent of the alleged offence.
