Nothing new: Israeli nature reserve Vulture held in Lebanon suspected of spying

Vulture held in Lebanon suspected of spying -
Imagine Jason Bourne -- but with feathers, claws and two-meter wingspan.
A vulture that flew into Lebanon from an Israeli nature reserve has been captured on suspicion of spying, according to local media reports.
Gamla Nature Reserve tracked the bird to near the southern Lebanese village of Bint Jbeil, which is just a few kilometers over the border from Israel -- then reports began trickling in that the bird was being held by locals who suspected it because it had Israeli tags and devices.
A series of pictures also surfaced: one of a vulture with Israeli tags and a rope tied around its leg; another of a transmitter on the same bird's back; and another of two men displaying the bird's massive wingspan.


'Vulture spying for Israel' caught in Sudan - Telegraph
The avian discovery was made in Kereinek, a town in the Darfur region of western Sudan, Israeli media have reported.
Sudanese officials are said to have concluded that the bird was a secret agent after discovering it was fitted with GPS and solar-powered equipment capable of broadcasting images via satellite, according to Haaretz newspaper, which cited an Egyptian website, El Balad.
The vulture also had a tag attached to its leg with "Israel Nature Service" and "Hebrew University, Jerusalem", leading to accusations that it was on an Israeli surveillance mission.
The reports follow allegations by Sudan that Israel carried out the bombing of a munitions depot near the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, in October, after jamming the country's radar defences.
Saudis detain Israeli vulture for being ‘Zionist spy’
Saudi Arabian authorities have reportedly detained a vulture on suspicion of being an Israeli spy.
According to reports in Middle Eastern media, a vulture discovered near a sheikh’s home in the town of Hayel was tagged with the words “Tel Aviv University” and had a GPS transmitter attached to its leg.
For many locals, that was enough to indicate a plot by the Israeli intelligence service Mossad. Saudi newspaper al-Weeam reported that the bird had a “foul odor coming out of its mouth — proof of a Zionist plot.”
Israel-related animal conspiracy theories - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Zoological conspiracy theories involving Israel are occasionally found in the media or on the Internet, typically in Muslim-majority countries, alleging use of animals by Israel to attack civilians or to conduct espionage. These conspiracies are often reported as evidence of a Zionist or Israeli plot.
Examples include the December 2010 shark attacks in Egypt, Hezbollah claims of capturing Israeli spying eagles,[1] and the 2011 capture in Saudi Arabia of a griffon vulture carrying an Israeli-labeled satellite tracking device.
