Intelligence Animals

Iran just arrested two pigeons for spying on its nuclear reactors. That’s after arresting 14 squirrels last year for the same offense. How exactly you “arrest” a pigeon or a squirrel I have no idea.


  1. Does this mean there is a dedicated person or department checking out the premises of the reactors for animals acting suspicious?! Imagine reading that vacancy in the local newspaper.

    According to this blog it seems to be even more serious than I thought.

    Fixing GPS devices, bugging instruments and advanced cameras in the bodies of trained animals like squirrels, mice, hamsters, etc, are among modern methods of collecting intelligence. Given the fast speed and the special physical features of these animals, they provide special capabilities for spying operations. Once the animals return to their place of origin, the intelligence gathered by them is then offloaded. . . .
