Spy Pigeons arrested in Iran....

#1
Iranian security forces have arrested two suspected 'spy pigeons' near the Natanz nuclear facility.
Spy pigeons fitted with metal rings and "invisible" strings have been captured.

Which reminds me:

The baby pigeon complained to his mother before flying a long distance, 'I can't make it, I'll get too tired.'

His mother replied, 'Don't worry, I'll tie a piece of string to one of your legs and the other end to mine.'

The baby started to cry.

'What's wrong?' asked the mother sympathetically.

'I don't want to end up being pigeon towed.'

:wink:

I can't help feeling that "captured" might have been a better word than "arrested" as questioning the suspects might be a little difficult...

Will the birds in question be given nice shiny grey suits? Did either have an ipod on them when captured?
Or will they claim it was unintentional and that they accidentally flew into Iranian airspace? :wink:

Slow day in the Telegraph office. This was sold as news a couple of years back.

Therefore I conclude its utter boll ox.

I guess its linked to the arrest of a donkey for stealing but that was in Egypt IIRC?

Signs of an upcoming International terrorist organisation of angry animals fighting back at thousands of years of persecution by humans, perhaps..........

"invisible" strings were attached to the bird

Really how did they know if they were invisible? Hmmmmmmmm

Feck me they were my prize racing pigeons. Wondered where they went. Probably see them beheaded on a website next

Do the Iranian police have nothing better to do than suspect pigeons of spying on them? Are they planning on questioning them next?

One of the pigeons was caught near a rose water production plant
Isn't rose water some sort of perfume? What's it got to do with nuclear production?

The source gave no further description of the pigeons, nor what their fate might be.
