Weird: Saudi Arabia arrests vulture on charges of being a Mossad spy

Vulture - Large Foam Crouching
Yes, you read that correctly. A tagged vulture that strayed into Saudi Arabian territory has been arrested on charges of spying. There must be something in the water in the Middle east. Recently, Egypt blamed  shark attacks on Israel.

The Daily Mail reported:

A 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 Tuesday.

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.’
