Sounds funny but In 2007 the Iranians intelligence operative detained over a dozen of squirrels found within the nation's borders, claiming that those squirrels were serving as spies for wester power determined to undermine the Islamic republic.
Reason why they could believe the squirrels could serve as spies.
This seems bizarre but animals have been used in the past for spying purposes; serving in the military since 1908. The Germans first used Pigeons by attaching cameras to them to take aerial pictures. Pigeons have been used in World War II to fly critical intelligence matter out of occupied France. The US had earlier tried to strap bombs to Bats and drop them over Japan before using the atomic bombing method.Dolphins and Seals are trained by the US to identify underwater mines. They can disable enemy swimmers too. US Marines in Kuwait are said to have trained chickens for a low-tech chemical detection system.
Thanks for reading.
