A griffon vulture was recently captures in Saudi Arabia and brought to the local authorities for examination. The bird was fitted with GPS systems, marked with Tel Aviv university, thus raised suspicions of espionage. Bandar Bin Saud, the Saudi nature authority has stated that the bird is fitted with systems for pure scientific purposes and that there is no truth behind claims that the poor bird might be a spy. This is not the first instance in which Israel is accused of mossad conspiracy theories. Just a month earlier Israel was blamed by Egypt to be accountable for an increase of shark attacks in the red sea in order to sabotage the country's tourism.
