(Times of Israel) The Lebanese security establishment scored a major coup with the capture of a high-flying Israeli "spy."
Lebanese blogs reported Wednesday that an eagle was trapped by a group of local hunters in the Maronite Catholic town of Ashqout, who noticed that the bird had a tag around his ankle with the word "Israel," as well as an abbreviation for Tel Aviv University, and the number 5278. The eagle had a transmitter on his back, according to the blog Lebanon Debate.
The men decided the bird was likely a Mossad spy on a mission for Israel, and handed it over to security authorities for investigation.
