Pigeons are far more credible for their abilities than we think.
They’ve been used to deliver messages forever. And now, authorities in Kuwait caught a bird with a backpack full of ecstasy tablets strapped to its back, and apparently it is the newest drug smuggling technique used by traffickers.
Pictures of the pigeon show a grey bird and a custom made bag on its back. When the backpack was opened, at least 200 small white pills spilled out.
The bird had reportedly began its smuggling route in Iraq and was tracked by authorities on its way to Kuwait. Authorities caught the bird after being spotted flying around an inner-city office block.
The plight of the pigeon has captured the attention of the internet, with users calling it a ‘flight risk’ and urging authorities not to grant it bail.
