Authorities in Saudi Arabia arrested a suspected Mossad spy when they captured a vulture. The bird, tagged at Tel Aviv University for a science study, flew into Saudi territory, where it was nabbed, according to Haaretz News Service. The bird was wearing a transmitter and leg bracelet as part of a migration research project, but the tags bore the words 'Tel Aviv University' and prompted suspicion. Residents and local reporters told Saudi Arabia's Al-Weeam newspaper that the Israeli bird seemed as though it could be a 'Zionist plot.' News of the bird's arrest went viral and people on Arab-language blogs insisted Zionists had trained and released the vulture to spy.
