Israeli Spy Vulture

Lebanese men proudly display ‘Israeli spy vulture’

Lebanese authorities believed they had captured an Israeli ‘spy vulture’ – before realising the bird had simply been tagged by conservationists.

    The vulture is the only one in that picture with any brains or dignity.

      They never display spy pigs or dogs.

    I always figured that a vulture was more likely to support Islam… I mean with all the beheadings and stonings and tossing gays off buildings Islam generates more carrion for the vultures.

    Not news; this happens two or three times a year.

      Well caught, Minicapt! These people are genuinely scary-crazy.

    Interesting that both vultures and Israel have undeservedly bad reputations. Vultures are actually very intelligent birds, no more aggressive to humans than any other bird and being carrion eaters they perform a valuable service by getting rid of carcasses before they become health hazards…and they’re not a danger to pets or other living animals as they’re not birds of prey. But they can be trained just like falcons can. My 6-year-old niece met a trained vulture at a falconry demonstration in England once and he perched amiably on her arm. Not the prettiest birds in the world, certainly, but looks aren’t everything.

    • I remember sitting around a Hotel swimming pool in Ouagadougou years ago, while several vultures were perched maybe three meters from us looking down at us!

    Here’s hoping the vulture meets them again, in its professional capacity.

  • The scientists tagged the vulture to measure bird behavior. What do they get? Bird-brained behavior. Just another war the Islamic death cult turns reason and logic on its head,

    I’m not convinced. “P98” on the wings… letter and numbers. Typical Jooo arsenal.

    I thought conservationists banded birds legs with a small unobtrusive metal band. Guarantee this one is either an Israeli spy vulture or an escapeee from a Lebanese Chipotle’s.

    We have turkey vultures here all the time. They are one of nature’s truly don’t give a fuck animals. When they’re at some roadkill they will not move even if you honk, even if you almost drive into them.

    Stupid as rocks, and yet they seem to be winning.
