Pigeon Caught Smuggling Drugs Into Costa Rican Prison

"Drug traffickers are using unimaginable ways to achieve their macabre atrocities," he said, in comments reported by Sky News.

"This is nothing new. In the past [traffickers] have used cats and dogs to pass drugs to prisoners. Now it seems they are using pigeons to carry in their wares from the outside."

Although it is the first time a pigeon was caught smuggling drugs in Costa Rica, it is not the first time the birds have been used as drug mules.

In Argentina in 2013, police intercepted a bird transporting marijuana from a dealer to clients, while a carrier bird that was used to smuggle drugs into a Colombian prison was captured by authorities in 2011.

As well as smuggling drugs and transporting hundreds of thousands of messages during wartime, pigeons have also been suspected of spying.

In May, police in India detained a pigeon on suspicion of spying for rival Pakistan, after a 14 year-old in the village of Manwal, near the India-Pakistan border, found a note in Urdu under the pigeon's feathers.

Although police did not find anything usual, they kept the bird in custody and logged it as "a suspected spy."
