CIA unveils Cold War spy-pigeon missions

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

The CIA has declassified details of its secret Cold War spy-pigeon missions.

The files reveal how pigeons were trained for clandestine missions photographing sensitive sites inside the Soviet Union.

The release also reveals how ravens were used to drop bugging devices on window sills and dolphins were trained for underwater missions.

The CIA believed animals could fulfil "unique" tasks for the agency's clandestine operations.

there is a story how cia spend a million in 60s to surgically implant a microphone and a transmitter inside a cat, so it can listen to conversations  in a park where many consuls and diplomats met, in ussr, the cat was ran over by a car on its first day, then us spies used dead rats along the road as a drop for microfilms, also in ussr, buit stray cats ate those rats,  to prevent that spies used tabasco sauce, and no cat ever touched their rats any longer

Nah, probably taken out by the Crow Mafia, for working with humans. A big deal in the Crow Mafia, from what I hear.

Caw.

Experimenting o,n and using animals all in the name of spying during wartime, doesn't sit well with me. :(

It's a terrible state of affairs when man feels the need to drag the animal world into his foolish games as well.
