Smuggling Drugs with Carrier Pigeons

Post by Mark

Customs officers at the Al-Ebdelli border entry point found a homing pigeon used as a drug mule to smuggle 178 amphetamine pills which were wrapped and tied round its body.

The officers spotted the bird which was coming from Iraq and pursued it till they caught it perching on a building rooftop, with a belt around its body that was stuffed with the pills. [Source]

If I saw a bird flying across the border I wouldn’t have thought anything of it.

    Seriously? How do they find this stuff, almost feel like they staged it to get credit for this insane finding.

    Like every other bust. Someone gets jealous and grasses someone else up.

    You seriously think that the police are carefully watching how birds fly? Give me a break.
