Turkey frees “spy” bird

(JNS.org) Authorities in Turkey have exonerated and freed a bird that was accused of being a spy for Israel. According to Turkish daily Hurriyet, residents of the village of Altinavya in the eastern province of Elazig became suspicious when they found the kestrel, a common Eurasian bird belonging to the falcon family, with a metallic ring stamped with the words “24311 Tel Avivunia Israel.” The villagers immediately delivered it to authorities, who proceeded to bring the bird to Firat University for medical examinations, including x-rays, to determine that it wasn’t carrying microchips or other spying devices. The bird was determined not to be a threat and was allowed to fly away.
