According to the Iranian Intelligence officials, the rodents were spying for Western powers determined to undermine the Islamic Republic.

"In recent weeks, intelligence operations have arrested 14 squirrels within Iran's borders," state-sponsored news agency IRNA reported. "The squirrels were carrying spy gear of foreign agencies, and were stopped before they could act. Thanks to the alertness of our intelligence service."


Confirming the report, the Iranian police commander Estmaeil Ahmadi-Moqadam confirmd the report, saying that a number of squirrels bearing foreign spy gear had been arrested within the Iranian borders.

"I heard of this but i have no specific knowledge on the subject," the Iranian police said.

The use of animals as spying agents have increased since World War 2. During the war, the Germans attached cameras to pigeons to take aerial pictures. Pigeons were also used to fly out critical intelligence matter out of occupied France during the second World War.

The US is said to have trained Dolphins and Seals to identify underwater mines, and even disable enemy swimmers too. Also, the US Marines in Kuwait are said to have chickens for a -tech chemical detection system.
