Gee, I wonder if the turkey buzzards flying in the sky behind my house are actually spying on me.

Vulture accused of SPYING for Israel is freed after UN peacekeepers forced to intervene

A HUGE vulture that was captured in Lebanon on suspicion of spying for Israel has been returned after UN peacekeepers stepped in to defend the bird.

The bird was captured by villagers in Lebanon

The griffon vulture flew over the Lebanese border from an Israeli game reserve where it had been released in a bid to introduce more raptors into the wild.
But residents of the Lebanese village Bint Jbeil caught the bird, which has a vast wing span of 1.9m (6ft 5in), after growing suspicious of an alleged tracking device that had been attached to its tail.
The device was actually a GPS transmitter which Tel Aviv university had been using to keep an eye on the raptor’s location.

breed in game preserve, tagged and given tracker, then released to wild.
villagers that found and captured the bird thought he tracker was a camera.
after UN explained the tracking and why, villages released the bird to fly home or free.

Israel has been trying to repopulate the endangered bird.

Vultures are scavenger, they don't swoop and grab. Israeli vultures are not as big condors or african vultures. Most vultures don't' fly well close to the ground, they are high flyers. They have to take a running start to get up in the air. Probably why the vulture was caught, it couldn't get enough of a run to get airborne.

oh-----difficult for them to get into the air-------TURKEYS-------however----I have
seen many documentaries revealing that vultures do grab infants-------and carry
them off------like little bundles wrapped in their blankets------Disney has revealed
that truth. Storks bring them and vultures take them away

Canadian park video was created as a student project.
African images are of a young child dying of starvation and the vulture was stalking it.
The old black a white is also a creation.
The youtube, eagle and graphic creation splicing child over the real pray

>>Mostly an Urban Legend, since everything weighing more than 4 pounds is far too heavy to be carried off by these birds, making this a case of Somewhere, an Ornithologist Is Crying. They will prefer vertical kidnapping smaller animals. Yet, there have been many cases throughout history where babies or little children were merely attacked by large birds, and some eagles are perfectly capable of killing prey too large to actually carry off.
Pterosaurs often take on this role in prehistoric settings, in spite of the fact that not only were most of them also too light to carry off even a child, they didn't even have grasping feet!<<
