Bird held on suspicion of spying


“A stork has been detained by police in Egypt on suspicion of spying. The bird was put behind bars after a man fishing in the Nile in Qena, some 280 miles south-east of Cairo, spotted an electronic device attached to its feathers. Thinking it was an undercover agent, he captured the stork and took it to a police station near his home, said Mohammed Kamal, head of security in the Qena region. Puzzled officers examined the bird, fearing the gadget was a bomb or spying equipment, and then called in veterinary experts.

I think I've seriously heard it all now!!!
