... and it's a SWAN

Quote:
In a case that's ruffling feathers in Egypt, authorities have detained a swan that a citizen suspected of being a spy.

Officials say a man brought the suspected winged infiltrator to a police station Friday in the Qena governorate, some 450 kilometers (280 miles) southeast of Cairo. Officials say the man suspected the bird was an undercover agent because it carried an electronic device.

The head of security in Qena said Saturday that officials examined the bird and the device. Mohammed Kamal said the device was neither an explosive nor a spying device. It likely could be a wildlife tracker.

With turmoil gripping Egypt, authorities and citizens remain suspicious of anything foreign. Earlier this year, a security guard filed a police report after capturing a pigeon he said carried microfilm.


The sheer stupidity of the "authorities" in muzzie countries is mindblowing. Iran detains squirrels they think spy for Israel, and not to be outdone, the Egyptians detain a bird.

Funny. But very disturbing.

Three years ago they also accused the Israelis of putting trained sharks in the sea near Sharm el Sheikh.

Since they've caught Israeli squirrels and something else, it isn't a shock they've also go Mossad swans.

I remember reading about the Saudis interrogating an eagle suspected of being israeli spy.
Seems like the Israelis have a whole variety of fauna working for them.
I'm curious what kind of experience is training all those bastards. Too bad I've spent the whole service in a dusty tank.

The Iraqis accused the British of releasing "man-eating badgers" in Basra. :lol:

You'd have to ask cokehabit or Naib. Here's an article about it.
Quote:
Word spread among the populace that UK troops had introduced strange man-eating, bear-like beasts into the area to sow panic.

But several of the creatures, caught and killed by local farmers, have been identified by experts as honey badgers.

The rumours spread because the animals had appeared near the British base at Basra airport.

UK military spokesman Major Mike Shearer said: "We can categorically state that we have not released man-eating badgers into the area.

Quote:
Dr Ghazi Yaqub Azzam, deputy dean of Basra's veterinary college, speculated that the badgers were being driven towards the city because of flooding in marshland north of Basra.

But the assurances did little to convince some members of the public.

One housewife, Suad Hassan, 30, claimed she had been attacked by one of the badgers as she slept.

"My husband hurried to shoot it but it was as swift as a deer," she said. "It is the size of a dog but his head is like a monkey," she told AFP.
